Hong Kong police move in against protest zone

Posted:

 Dozens of Hong Kong police have descended on a pro-democracy protest zone to remove barricades in a dawn raid.

   Officers wearing riot helmets arrived at the site early Friday to take down some of the tents and canopies in Mong Kok. Police said they were not trying to clear the site, which is an offshoot protest zone across the Victoria Harbor from the main occupied area in the city's financial district.

   Police surrounded about 30 protesters, who did not put up resistance.
