HONG KONG —

People infuriated by what they call a discriminatory ban on photography by one of Italian fashion label Dolce & Gabbana's Hong Kong outlets have protested outside the store.

Several dozen people gathered outside the shop Sunday afternoon. They yelled for the company to apologize after news reports earlier this month said sales staff were preventing Hong Kong people - but not mainland Chinese - from taking photos of the shop windows from the sidewalk.

It's at least the third protest in a week. An earlier rally last Sunday drew hundreds.

Dolce & Gabbana said in a statement last week that it "has not taken part in any action aiming at offending the Hong Kong public."

The protest highlights simmering resentment among local residents over the growing influence that wealthy Chinese have over the city.
