Tens of thousands of people are marching in Hong Kong amid tight security, in the latest protest organised by pro-democracy groups.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

Mass protests have been held for weeks, initially over an extradition deal with mainland China but now covering other issues on democracy in Hong Kong.

Protesters on Sunday have ignored the designated finish line, continuing on to China's central government building.

Many protesters are now involved in a stand-off with police.

Riot police say a clearance operation will begin in the Central area of Hong Kong, which lies outside the designated route.

Earlier in the day, protesters threw eggs at the liaison office, China's central government building. Images from outside the building show signs covered in graffiti.
