The Olympic flame arrived in Hong Kong on Wednesday to begin its journey through China after troubled legs around the world, an AFP photographer witnessed.

A plane carrying the flame arrived at Hong Kong International Airport shortly after 2:00 pm (0600 GMT) from Hanoi ahead of its run through the city on Friday, the photographer said.

The flame was carried down the plane's steps and across a red carpet as children waved flags on one side and a band played on the other, he said.

The flame was then taken by bus to an undisclosed location.
