China Warns Hong Kong Violence Will 'Be Severely Punished' As U.S. Navy Tries to Visit

China has harshly condemned the recent violence that shuttered Hong Kong's international airport for two days as protesters and police clashed, leaving several injured as the U.S. Navy sought to dock in the restive city.

Tuesday's flare-up in what has been a months-long series of demonstrations against Hong Kong's semi-autonomous government saw protesters hunting for suspected spies and undercover cops used by Beijing to infiltrate the movement. In one instance, demonstrators attacked and detained a reporter from China's ruling Communist Party tabloid Global Times, drawing anger from the official outlet as well as "great indignation and strong condemnation" Wednesday from Chinese State Council Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office spokesperson Xu Luying.

"We express our strongest condemnations of these terrorist-like acts and express our deepest condolences to the injured mainland compatriots and Hong Kong police officers," Xu told said in a statement, arguing such actions have "broken the bottom line of the law, morality and humanity."

"It is shocking and chilling to openly commit serious violent crimes in plain sight," she added. "Their behavior shows an extreme contempt for the rule of law, seriously damaging Hong Kong's international's image and offending a vast number their mainland compatriots. Such extremely violent crimes must be severely punished according to the law."

3. UK has nothing to do with Hong Kong anymore

They handed it back over to the Chinese in 1997.
