Hong Kong police remove protesters' barricades

Two weeks into demonstration, students caught by surprise

(ANSA) - Hong Kong, October 13 - Hong Kong police on Monday began removing barricades erected by pro-democracy protesters more than two weeks ago.
    The police action caught demonstrating students by surprise. Barricades were first taken down in the Admiralty district, an eastern extension of the business district and the location of ministry buildings. Dismantlement also took place in the former Mong Kok district, the neighbourhood with highest population density in Hong Kong.
    Protesters have been demanding from Beijing unhindered democracy for the former British colony.
