Don't interfere in Hong Kong China warns US

'Illegal rallies' says Beijing

(ANSA) - Rome, September 29 - China on Monday warned the US and other countries not to interfere in the ongoing protests in Hong Kong.
    The protests are an internal affair, the ministry told the South China Morning Post.
    Tens of thousands of pro-democracy protesters are blocking Hong Kong's streets, shutting down its business hub and ignoring appeals to leave.
    The demonstrations have spread to other areas including a shopping district and a residential area.
    Riot police withdrew on Monday after overnight clashes in which they used batons and fired volleys of tear gas to try to disperse the crowds.
    China has warned other countries not to support the "illegal rallies".
