HKJA condemns attack on Inmedia reporter


 A reporter from Hong Kong inmedia was assaulted when he covered a demonstration in  Wan Chai on July 1. The reporter suffered several punches by some from a group of more than 100 people who were all dressed in black. His camera memory card was snatched.

The demonstration was held by the League of Social Democrats and Demosisto during the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping. The reporter was assaulted by some unidentified people when the protestors began to walk from the Hong Kong Family Planning Association office towards the Golden Bauhinia Square. The banners and placards held by protestors were grabbed by the other group.
 
The Inmedia reporter was hit on the shoulder twice before an attempt to snatch his camera's memory card was made. During the attack, a foreign journalist also fell to the ground.
 
HKJA strongly condemns those attacks and urges the Police to give appropriate protection to journalists.
