Police Urge Campus Protesters to Drop Weapons: Hong Kong Update
(Bloomberg) -- Police urged protesters to drop their weapons and leave a university campus in Kowloon, but many remained holed up after a weekend standoff led to dramatic scenes with smoke billowing from multiple fires at the campus as the work week kicked off.Police said Monday morning that they were conducting a dispersal operation at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and disputed news reports that they had "raided" the campus. Earlier, they had said live ammunition may be used in clearing the site, where an unknown number of protesters had been holed up for several days. The university said that activists had damaged laboratories and taken "dangerous chemicals."The chaotic scenes came as Hong Kong braced for yet more disruption after protests left the city paralyzed much of last week. Demonstrations seeking greater democracy in the Beijing-controlled territory have become increasingly violent in recent weeks, with protesters vandalizing transportation networks and China-friendly businesses as they push for demands including an independent inquiry into police violence and the ability to nominate and elect the city's leaders.Key Developments:Police urge protesters to drop their weaponsPolice make arrests near PolyUProtesters holed up at university; some try to leaveSmoke billowing from campus; tear gas firedPolice threaten live fire if attackedCross-Harbour Tunnel closed to start work weekHere's the latest:Police urge protesters to drop weapons (11:46 a.m.)In a series of Twitter posts, Hong Kong's pol
