Both sides in Hong Kong warn of crisis as clashes continue


Demonstrators remained encamped around government headquarters in the Admiralty district and had reoccupied streets in the dense commercial Mong Kok area. Police had cleared the Mong Kok sit-in early Friday, but demonstrators returned later in the day and took back control of several key streets, clashing with officers throughout the night.

Speaking out after 26 people were arrested and dozens injured in Mong Kok early Saturday, Hong Kong Police Commissioner Andy Tsang Wai-hung said police had been "extremely tolerant" and that protesters' increasingly "illegal acts are undermining the rule of law."

"These violations are ... destroying Hong Kong," he said, adding that schools, businesses and hospitals had been disrupted.
