Masked anti-government protesters were seen destroying surveillance cameras of businesses and hitting fire sprinklers at a Mass Transit Railway (MTR) station in Hong Kong’s Mong Kok district on Saturday, as tensions escalated following the government’s new ban on masks.

Footage also shows a heavy police presence, with officers removing barricades set up by protesters.

The new face mask ban, which came into effect at Friday midnight local time (16:00 GMT), was invoked by Chief Executive of Hong Kong Carrie Lam under the emergency ordinance.

The Emergency Regulations Ordinance law used to implement the ban was last applied during riots in 1967. Lam said during a press conference on Friday that barring Hong Kongers from wearing face coverings at public rallies will provide a “deterrent effect” and is intended to stop violent acts occurring during protests.
