Hong Kong protest: police fire rounds of teargas at protesters trying to leave campus – live
Police have formed a tight perimeter around Hong Kong Polytechnic University and are not letting anyone in, including journalists. Protesters trying to escape have been tear gassed and arrested, and some have retreated back inside.
A volunteer inside the campus says there are about 300 or 400 people left in the university. Asked what they plan to do, she says: “They are 20 year old kids. They don’t have plans. Everyone is nervous.”
Parents have also collected by a police cordon nearby.
