Hong Kong universities become 'battlefields' as citywide violence spreadsPolice in Hong Kong battled pro-democracy protesters at several university campuses in sometimes savage clashes, as parts of the city were paralyzed including Hong Kong's Central financial district that was tear-gassed for a second day running. At the rural Chinese University near Tai Po, some of the fiercest fighting broke out at night as riot police stormed the campus where hundreds of protesters congregated, firing a barrage of tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon. Hundreds of masked protesters, many of them students, hurled back petrol bombs, rocks and bricks, some launched with catapults.
