Renewed clashes between police and protesters in Hong Kong

There have been fresh clashes between protesters and police in Hong Kong.

Earlier, police had cleared tents and barricades from the area.

Officers used pepper spray and batons and dozens of protesters were seen knocked to the ground or carried away by police.

Amongst those detained was Bangkok-based Getty photojournalist Paula Bronstein, who was taken away by police after standing on the bonnet of a car.

Hong Kong’s Foreign Correspondents Club issued a statement demanding her immediate release, and said police had threatened and intimidated other journalists covering the protests.

Talks between the Hong Kong government and student representatives are scheduled for Tuesday. The meeting will be moderated by the president of Lingnan University and will be broadcast live.
