HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong protesters blocked a key road next to the Hong Kong headquarters of China’s People’s Liberation Army on Saturday, just yards from a peaceful pro-democracy rally.

They were shouting obscenities at police, daubing anti-government graffiti on walls of shops and shining lasers at a helicopter that hovered overhead, prompting bursts of pepper spray from the police.
