The Olympic torch relay in Hong Kong ended on Friday after a trouble-free run through the streets of the city on its return to Chinese soil.

The final runner used the flame to light a cauldron on a square overlooking the famed Victoria Harbour after a journey of nearly eight hours.

Tens of thousands of people turned out to cheer the Beijing Olympic torch, with police briefly detaining a handful of people amid scattered, small-scale protests.
