(28 Nov 2019) Police and other emergency service personnel entered the Polytechnic University campus in Hong Kong for the first time on Thursday to remove a stockpile of dangerous items including petrol bombs, a police official said.
Deputy Regional Commander, Chow Yat Ming, said the decision to enter the campus came after university management announced no protesters remained inside.
The university has been ringed by police for 11 days after protesters retreated into the campus following fierce clashes.
Chow said the police’s goal was to “restore the safety of the school and also to reopen the campus as soon as possible”.
