HONG KONG – Hong Kongers marched in honor of eight locals killed in a bus hijacking in Manila, denouncing the Philippine government for botching the rescue operation and demanding justice for the dead.

About 20 Hong Kong legislators led the crowd gathered at an urban park in a short ceremony honoring the dead before setting off on a march to the financial district. Police didn't estimate the size of the crowd, but organizers said about 80,000 people took part.

"That 80,000 people can show up in such a short period of time — it shows the anger and unity of the Hong Kong people," lawmaker Cheung Man-kwong said.

Hong Kongers blasted Manila police for what they called an amateurish rescue attempt.
