Hong Kong was heated over a brutal attack launched by more than 100 armed men on a pro-democracy mob in a subway station, leaving dozens injured. 

At least 45  people were injured and hospitalized, including one in a critical condition and five others seriously wounded, reports said.

On Sunday (21) night a vicious attack, committed by a group of people wearing white t-shirts and facemasks with steel poles and rattan cane, graved upon passengers on trains, reporters and civilians at Yuen Long MTR Station in the new Territories. 

The attackers were believed to be opposition to the city government's extradition bill, reports said. 

No police officer was seen during the attack, or for a substantial period after.
