Three tear gas canisters fired into residential apartment, causing entire flat to reek of tear gas smoke and surrounding walls to be blackened by flames

The PTU troops fired tear gas in a reckless and ruthless manner on the streets of Mong Kok on Sunday afternoon, 20th October. Three tear gas canisters were found to be shot onto the balcony of a residential apartment, where the residents of the flat fled from the deadly gases immediately. They returned with their pets a few hours later only to discover that there were three spots which were scorched black by the flames of the canisters, and the air gave off an unbearably toxic smell, making it hard to breathe.
