China's Prosident Xi Jinping warned the protesters in Hongkong to "crushed bodies and shattered bones".

China's Prosident Xi Jinping have a strong word towards to those people who continue those protest in Hong kong. He said any attempt to divide China will end in "crushed bodies and shattered bones".

His comments came during a state visit to Nepal on Sunday, China's state broadcaster CCTV said.

The Hong Kong protests, also known as the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill (ELAB) Movement, are an ongoing series of demonstrations in Hong Kong which began with the aim to oppose the introduction of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill proposed by the Hong Kong government.If enacted, the bill would allow local authorities to detain and extradite criminal fugitives who are wanted in territories with which Hong Kong does not currently have extradition agreements.

People were concerned that the bill would subject Hong Kong residents and visitors to the mainland Chinese jurisdiction, undermining the autonomy of the region and its civil liberties.As the protests progressed, the protesters laid out five key demands, which include investigation into the alleged police misconduct and resumption of Democratic reforms which are promised in the Basic Law.

Several peaceful Hong Kong rallies descended into clashes between riot police and protesters on Sunday.

Public transport stations and shops deemed to be pro-Beijing were damaged.

Several neighbourhoods saw rallies, and by Sunday afternoon at least 27 stations on the MTR - Hong Kong's metro - were closed.

Police said they had used "minimum force" to disperse protesters, but television footage showed weekend shoppers caught in the chaos.

Some were filmed screaming and apparently injured as officers rushed into a shopping centre.

According to Reuters news agency, riot police with shields were forced out of one mall by chanting shoppers who took the side of the protesters.

The group of several dozen, some wearing head lamps, climbed the 500 metre peak during a thunderstorm. The statue held a black banner that read: "Revolution of our time, Liberate Hong Kong

Hong Kong's protests started in June against proposals to allow extradition to mainland China, a move many feared would undermine the city's judicial independence and endanger dissidents.

The bill has long been withdrawn, but protests have widened to include demands for full democracy and an inquiry into claims of police brutality.

More than 2,300 people have been arrested since the civil disobedience began.
