The Hong Kong police on Wednesday arrested 53 people for participating in unlawful assemblies in Central area of the city. As the night fell on Tuesday, a large group of protesters gathered in the Central district, blocked roads repeatedly and behaved in a disorderly manner. They spilled over onto roads in the business hub and built barricades with traffic cones and other objects to paralyze traffic, the police said. Police officers have taken steps to enforce the law and disperse the crowd, but some protesters ignored police warnings and re-blocked the transport routes, Xinhua news agency reported. Up to midnight, 36 males and 17 females were arrested for offenses including participating in unlawful and unauthorized assemblies. (IANS)
