Hong Kong riot police pulled down barricades and canopies from a key site of pro-democracy protests in an early morning raid today (Friday), according to media reports.
The police action, which took place at Mong Kok, a busy district of the city, is the third such operation to clear protest zones.
Meanwhile, Leung Chun-ying, the chief executive of Hong Kong, has again offered talks to student protesters to discuss political and democratic reforms. He said talks could be held as early as next week.
