Foreign Affairs Correspondent

China’s President Xi Jinping has marked the centenary of the Chinese Communist Party with a stark warning that anyone who tries to bully the country, he said, would have “their heads bashed and bloodied”.

Meanwhile police were out in force in Hong Kong, on the anniversary of the territory’s return to Chinese control, warning people not to take part in pro-democracy protests.

One police officer is in hospital after being stabbed, with the authorities calling it a “serious injury”.
