China's rebellious semi-autonomous territory is facing another weekend of volatility after the death today of a 22-year-old demonstrator who fell from a parking garage during protests earlier this week. Critics are demanding an investigation into how Chow Tsz-Lok fell during a police crackdown involving tear gas. In response to his death, hundreds of illegally masked protesters marched through central Hong Kong Friday demanding "revenge."
Are the protests getting more dangerous? Given the low number of fatalities in the months-long movement, each death carries the potential for a major escalation.
