HONG KONG - Hundreds of Hong Kong student protesters who had barricaded themselves at a university attempted to flee the besieged campus early Monday, after an overnight standoff.
As the students made what appeared appeared to be a concerted effort to leave the campus of Hong Kong Polytechnic University, they were chased by police who fired tear gas. VOA saw police arrest dozens of students, who were detained with plastic wire ties around their wrists. Some were marched in front of reporters as they were taken away.
It's not clear how many students remain on campus or how many have been arrested. The number of casualties also isn't clear. Police overnight had warned they would use lethal force if they continued to be attacked.
Student protesters in Hong Kong engaged in fierce clashes with police at a university campus early Monday in what appeared to be some of the worst violence since anti-government protests began five months ago.
