At least 90 people have been arrested in Hong Kong in protests against the government’s decision to postpone elections. Police fired pepper balls at pro-democracy campaigners. Protesters are angry that authorities will hold elections to the city’s legislature next July instead of this Sunday. Authorities have blamed the coronavirus pandemic for the delay. Anti-government protests have been held across Hong Kong since June last year, but slowed dramatically after China passed its so-called Hong Kong National Security Law.
