Protesters face off at rally for Hong Kong in Toronto

(CTV)A Toronto rally in solidarity with anti-government protesters in Hong Kong became physical Saturday afternoon as protesters were met with pro-Beijing demonstrators.

Hundreds attended a pro-democracy gathering outside Old City Hall that was met by a counter-protest of supporters waving Chinese flags and chanting “one China.”

The scheduled march around the Eaton Centre shopping mall was one of several planned across Canada on Saturday in support of the pro-democracy movement, including Calgary, Vancouver and Winnipeg.

United Airlines passenger accused of placing camera in first-class bathroom

The FBI has accused a Malaysian man of placing a camera in the first-class bathroom of a United Airlines flight earlier this year from San Diego to Houston.

A female first class passenger went to the bathroom mid-flight on May 5 and saw “an item with a blue blinking light,” according to court documents filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The woman, unnamed in the document, wasn’t sure if what she found was part of the aircraft but brought it to the flight crew.

Houston United Airlines Corporate Security determined the item in question was a video recording device. “After viewing the information on the device, a male was caught on video installing the device in the first class lavatory of this particular flight,” per the document. While the man’s face couldn’t be identified in the video, his clothing and jewelry were visible. Footage of passengers boarding the aircraft in San Diego, and the man leaving the aircraft in Houston, helped the FBI track him down: Choon Ping Lee, a Malaysian citizen who works for Halliburton, an oil field service company. He was formally charged on August 5.
