Pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong have retaken streets in the Mong Kok district cleared by the authorities just a few hours earlier.

Their victory came after clashes with riot police using batons and pepper spray.

Wielding open umbrellas as their only weapons, an estimated 9,000 demonstrators pushed back police lines.

They managed to retake territory south of a major intersection, stopping traffic in both directions.
