Police in New York had to break up fights between supporters and opponents of Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen on Thursday during a visit to the United States which infuriated Beijing. Taiwanese media broadcast footage of the clashes outside the Grand Hyatt, where Tsai is staying during her two-day US trip. Opponents of Tsai -- many waving Chinese flags -- chanted slogans and fought with supporters, while one man was seen being detained and handcuffed by police.
