Hong Kong Protest Leader Viciously Attacked With Hammers, Wrenches

Across Hong Kong, the tension between the protesters and the government has been getting worse, particularly after an upsurge in violent attacks on individuals, police and demonstrators alike. But in an especially violent and gruesome attack, Jimmy Sham Tsz-kit, the leader of one of Hong Kong's biggest organizers of non-violent demonstrators was brutalized early Thursday by a group of thugs. The attackers reportedly used hammers and wrenches to beat Sham - who was photographed lying in a pool of his own blood on Arran Street in Mong Kak at around 7:40 pm Hong Kong time.

It was the second attack on Sham in two months.

Sham was the leader of Civil Human Rights Front, one of the larger groups that has emerged to organize non-violent pro-democracy demonstrations. The organization told the press that Sham was conscious and in stable condition when he arrived at the hospital. Police said he was bleeding from his head and arms when officers found him.
