Clashes have been reported in Tseung Kwan O and Fortress Hill on Saturday after some pro-Beijing groups tore down posters put up anti-extradition bill protesters.

In the morning, a group of middle-aged people reportedly tore down posters at a Lennon Wall in Hang Hau shortly after 11am.

This led to a melee and one man said he suffered injuries to his limbs and face as he was attacked by the middle-aged pro-Beijing group.

In another incident, dozens of pro-police demonstrators reportedly attacked some people who were outside the Fortress Hill MTR station.

The attackers, who wore light blue T-shirts with the words "I love police" on them, also defaced a pro-democracy banner that was displayed there.

In footage that was circulated online, the group can be seen attacking some people on the King's Road.
