Crackdown on Hong Kong vendors

An unidentified injured man is escorted by riot police at Mong Kok in Hong Kong, China February 9, 2016. Riot police used batons and pepper spray early on Tuesday to disperse crowds after clashes erupted when authorities tried to move illegal street vendors from a working-class district, the worst street violence since pro-democracy protests in late 2014. It is not known whether the injured man is a protester. REUTERS/Bobby Yip

A protester (L) kicks a policeman (2nd L) who has fallen down during a clash at Mongkok district in Hong Kong, China February 9, 2016. The clashes broke out after police moved in to clear "hawkers", or illegal vendors who sell local delicacies, trinkets and household goods from makeshift streetside stalls. The hawkers, long a common sight on Hong Kong's bustling streets, quickly attracted a strong social media following under the hashtag #FishballRevolution. REUTERS/E Weekly/Fu Chun-wai
