HONG KONG (AP) - Clashes have broken out at the site of one of Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests as local residents and pro-Beijing supporters tried to evict activists from the street they are occupying.

The two groups were in a tense standoff in Kowloon's crowded Mong Kok neighborhood today.

People are pushing and shoving each other as police try to keep them apart.

The democracy activists have linked hands, trying to stand their ground against the huge crowd. At one point, police brought in a stretcher to take away a young man, although it was unclear why.
