Hong Kong: Hong Kong police are set to end the nearly two-week-long siege of the city’s Polytechnic University (PolyU) on Friday noon after they completed an operation removing dangerous items, including Molotov cocktails, bows, and chemicals stowed there. The city state police will pull out all officers surrounding the campus after their day-long operation on Thursday, Efe News reported. The impending police retreat will end a dramatic episode of months-long protest movement that has incurred the wrath of people of Hong Kong supporting the movement, as well as the academic world.
During the operation, police claim to have seized around 4,000 petrol bombs, hundreds of gas canisters, hundreds of bottles of chemicals, including sulphuric acid ‘believed to have been stolen by protesters from laboratories on the campus ‘ and other offensive weapons such as bows, arrows and catapults. No protester was found. (IANS)
