Dozens of protesters from a pro-Beijing political party have demanded an apology from Washington over allegations by former National Security Agency (NASA) contractor Edward Snowden that the US hacked into Hong Kong computer systems.

Snowden named Hong Kong's Chinese University, where its server exchange serves up to 80 percent of Hong Kong's domestic internet traffic, as a possible hacking target.
