(28 Nov 2019) Police safety teams in Hong Kong began clearing the Polytechnic University on Thursday.
The campus has been ringed by police for 11 days as protesters retreated into the campus after blocking a major tunnel and set toll booths on fire during clashes with police.
The police move into the University came after its administration said they believed no one else remained inside after a two-day search ended Wednesday.
Senior police officer Chow Yat Ming said police mediators and counsellors will coax any remaining protesters to seek medical treatment.
He said they won’t be immediately arrested but their details will be taken down for possible further action.
Some 100 personnel, including hazmat teams and explosive disposal experts, fanned out across the vast campus.
