An elderly man has died in Hong Kong after getting caught up in protests.

According to reports, the 70-year-old cleaner passed away when he was struck in the head by "hard objects hurled by masked rioters".

It comes a week after a 22-year-old student died after falling from a building while a police operation was happening. 

Meanwhile, Hong Kong’s Justice Secretary Teresa Cheng was seriously injured when she was jostled in London.
