Protests grow in Hong Kong
For days, Hong Kong’s protesters fortified a university campus to keep police from getting in. Cornered by authorities, they are now trying to get out. Officers repelled one attempt with tear gas, driving a few hundred protesters back into the Hong Kong Polytechnic campus. The situation has played out repeatedly during the city’s months of anti-government unrest. The protesters want to avoid arrest. The police want to pick up as many as they can.
