Beijing's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has expressed support of the recent wave of pro-China demonstrators clashing with Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters in Australia.

The statement came as posters with death threats directed at pro-Hong Kong protesters were found in the main foyer of the University of Technology Sydney. The posters were removed only after the ABC brought them to the attention of the campus security.
