Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Graphic VIDEO shows men armed with sticks thrashing commuters after Hong Kong protest”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A video surfaced on social media showing a group of men, many of them wearing surgical masks and armed with what looks like wooden clubs, storming a train car full of passengers at the Yuen Long station in Hong Kong. People are screaming and attempting to cover themselves from the blows, as attackers charge passengers at random.

The station was used by many of the demonstrators returning back home from a massive anti-government protest against the local and mainland Chinese governments. The video from inside the train car was streamed live by opposition Democratic Party lawmaker Lam Cheuk-ting, who was injured in the mayhem.

Another video shows the attackers beating up commuters as they try to climb the escalator, presumably at the same station.
