July 2 (Bloomberg) -- Hundreds of police cleared protesters
from Hong Kong’s business district today after the biggest march
in a decade, held to oppose Chinese control of elections, turned
into an overnight sit-in.
Police have arrested 511 people for illegal gathering and
obstructing traffic at Chater Road. This morning, police
officers carried protesters to buses behind barricades erected
near the Mandarin Oriental hotel, clearing the area by 9 a.m.
