Hong Kong police give final warning to protesters


 Hong Kong police and bailiffs have given protesters a final warning to leave the main pro-democracy protest camp across a busy highway before they start removing barricades.

   Court workers are due to carry out a restraining order Thursday morning that calls for barriers to be dismantled and obstructions removed from three sections of the more than 2-month-old protest site.

   Bailiffs moved down the road and repeatedly read out a warning for people to leave certain roads.

   Police Senior Superintendent Kwok Pak-chung warned the public that anyone obstructing the bailiffs would be arrested.

   The sprawling encampment in Hong Kong's Admiralty section, on the edge of the financial district, has been the focal point for the protesters, who have occupied the site for 75 days.
