Protesters in Hong Kong blocked streets and train stations, spray-painted buildings, and clashed with police on Monday. They also staged a general strike, prompting the city’s airport to cancel more than 200 flights. In one district, a mob of men threw wooden poles at the protesters, who retaliated with traffic cones and rods. Riot police arrested at least 82 people by early evening.
