A Clash On A Hong Kong Campus
The situation in Hong Kong escalated early this week as police trapped protesters on the Polytechnic University campus.
About 280 protestors were taken to a nearby hospital to treat their injuries.
Some 600 protestors left the university’s campus in a manner described as “peaceful” by the school’s chief executive.
