Hong Kong: Protesters arrested as they run from campus

Agency News

Chinese government’s people’s Army was active in the city of Hong Kong as several protesters have been arrested while trying to run from a Hong Kong university campus surrounded by police.

A group of around 100 people tried to leave Polytechnic University but were met with tear gas and rubber bullets.It's the third time protesters have tried to leave, following a violent and fiery overnight stand-off with police.

In the past week, Polytechnic University has turned into a battleground as the long-running Hong Kong protests become more violent. Meanwhile - as protests were raging - a Hong Kong court ruled the government's anti-mask law unconstitutional.

In October the government invoked a colonial-era emergency law to make wearing masks illegal - but protesters largely defied the ban.
