Baku, August 14, AZERTAC

Condemnation for violence poured in after Global Times reporter Fu Guohao was illegally seized and brutally assaulted by rioters at the Hong Kong International Airport around midnight Tuesday, according to chinadaily.com.cn.

Fu Guohao, reporter of Global Times website, was attacked by rioters at the Hong Kong airport while he was performing reporting tasks.

Radical protesters at the airport beat and tied him up, claiming that he took photos of them.

Rioters told other reporters in the terminal that they searched Fu's bag and found a T-shirt with a banner saying, "I love Hong Kong Police," so they attacked him.

Fu was seen rolling on the ground with bruises on his body and his head bleeding.

First aid personnel arrived to give medical attention to Fu, who had almost passed out while surrounded by the protesters for about 20 minutes.

Rioters also tried to obstruct first-aid personnel from helping Fu at the airport. The Global Times reporters also reported the situation to the Hong Kong Police.

At present, Fu is being treated in hospital.
