Schools closed as protests put chokehold on Hong Kong

AFP, Hong Kong

Pro-democracy protesters challenging China’s rule of Hong Kong choked the city with barricades and rallies for a fourth straight day yesterday, as the police force drafted in reinforcements and Chinese state media fuelled speculation of a curfew. The five-month crisis entered a new phase on Monday when hardcore protesters embarked on a campaign to “blossom everywhere” across the international financial hub, in a bid to stretch police resources as thinly as possible.

Dressed in their signature black, the masked protesters set up barricades on roads, vandalised train stations, rampaged through shopping malls and orchestrated rolling confrontations with riot police in multiple locations.
