Riot police began dispersing protesters in Hong Kong after several days of a standoff near the Polytechnic University.

Hundreds of protesters have erected barricades outside Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and encamped inside. Police have been trying to get the protesters to leave the building, their previous attempts to storm the campus led to fierce clashes.

Protesters’ve never pushed closer to the riot police, but an intense barrage of tear gas, hand thrown grenades that explode immediately, forced them back to their original frontline. Riot police also surrounded them from another end of Jordan Road and Chi Wo Strt.

The fights near the entrance resembled a hellish warzone as protesters set barricades ablaze in hope of fending off the riot officers. They also managed to set several armored riot cars on fire.

Several groups of demonstrators had earlier tried to escape from the campus and break through police cordons. Most of them were stopped, however, and more than 400 people were detained.
