A senior US official said on Tuesday, August 14th, that Hong Kong's freedoms of assembly and expression should be protected, as protests heated against China's growing influence in the former British colony.

"Freedoms of expression and assembly are core values that we share with the people of Hong Kong and these freedoms should be protected," said the US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
