Hong Kong police shoot protester, man set on fire

A Hong Kong protester was shot by police Monday in a dramatic scene caught on video as demonstrators blocked train lines and roads during the Monday morning commute.

Elsewhere, a man was set on fire following an apparent dispute over national identity in the semi-autonomous Chinese region, which has been wracked by five months of protests. The man was in critical condition in a city hospital.

The violence is likely to further inflame passions in Hong Kong after a student who fell during an earlier protest succumbed to his injuries Friday and police arrested six pro-democracy lawmakers over the weekend.
