Strong Typhoon Vicente hits Hong Kong

A strong typhoon has struck Hong Kong, leaving scores of people injured, hundreds of trees felled, and many flights cancelled or delayed.

Typhoon Vicente hit late on Monday, bringing winds of more than 140 km/h (87 mph) and heavy downpours.

The BBC's Juliana Liu says most of the injuries were caused by flying debris on Monday night, but that life has already started returning to normal.
