Hong Kongers march against national security laws

Riot police armed with shields were present for the 'silent protest' - absent of the usual chanting and slogan shouting - and scuffles broke out in one part of the city prompting police to use pepper spray.

The proposed national security laws were reviewed by the National People's Congress Standing Committee on Sunday, according to a report by state media Xinhua.

The laws are expected to be passed before the end of June but a draft has yet to be made public.
