HONG KONG (AP) – Shouting “Wearing mask is not a crime,” thousands of protesters are braving the rain to march in central Hong Kong as a court rejected a second legal attempt to block a mask ban at pro-democracy protests. The ban took force Saturday, triggering more violence over the last two days, which included the use of live ammunition. A protester was wounded when he was shot in the chest. A lawmaker says the High Court refused to grant an injunction on the mask ban but it will hear later a challenge against Hong Long leader Carrie Lam’s use of emergency powers to impose the measure.
