TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Hong Kong police swooped in with tear gas and batons as protesters who have taken over a university campus made an apparent last-ditch effort to escape arrest.
Protesters cornered on the campus emerged in force Monday. They were greeted by tear gas from police who had blocked all ways out of the area, AP reported.
Riot police moved in and subdued many protesters. It wasn’t clear if any had escaped.
Hong Kong has been rocked by anti-government protests that have raged for more than five months.
