Four people detained on Saturday when clashes broke out between protesters and the police in Yuen Long have been denied bail by Fanling Court.

The four, aged between 18 and 25, are charged with possessing offensive weapons, including an air gun, pocket knives, and a crossbow.

The defendants are alleged to have been carrying the weapons on Long Lok Road near Yoho Mall on a day when tens of thousands marched to protest over a gang attack on MTR passengers in the town on July 21.

A fifth person, charged with obstructing police, was released on bail.

The defendants were not required to enter pleas and the case was adjourned until September 3.
