South China Morning Post cite police sources in Hong Kong
Say the fear protesters are arming themselves with bricks plucked from pavements
- and other weapons
I posted earlier on a likely escalation:
- Police IN HK are now indicating warnings (in the from of displaying red flags) to protesters to desist or force may be deployed. Force in this case is likely to be capsicum spray, batons.
Which was quickly followed by media reports police are now using pepper spray on some protesters.
Lets hope peace and democracy prevail in HK.
