Hong Kong tense after protest clashes scrap talksFriction between pro-democracy protesters and opponents of their weeklong occupation of major Hong Kong streets persisted Saturday as police denied any connection to criminal gangs suspected of inciting attacks on largely peaceful demonstrators. Police arrested 19 people during a night of running brawls in which at least 12 people and six officers were injured. Protesters also accused police of working together with triads to use force to attack them, but police denied it.The protesters have been in the streets since Sept. 26, pledging to preserve Hong Kong's Western-style legal system and civil liberties.China's government has mostly kept quiet during the crisis, other than to harshly criticize the protests and support the Hong Kong government's efforts to disperse them.
