Hong Kong Police Douse Protester During Clashes

The South China Morning Post said at least a dozen pro-democracy protesters were arrested on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 25, after they failed to follow an order to leave the Mong Kok protest site. The clearance began peacefully, according to reports, but scuffles later broke out after police warned those not leaving that they were at risk of being arrested.
