Hong Kong Protesters Hurl Petrol Bombs As Chinese Soldiers Clean Streets

Fires blazed on the doorstep of Hong Kong's Polytechnic University into the early hours of Sunday.

According to Reuters, protesters hurled petrol bombs and police fired volleys of tear gas.

It was one of the most dramatic scenes in more than five months of escalating violence.

Hours earlier, squads of Chinese soldier had begun to clear debris that has blocked some key roads in the city for days.

But their presence could stoke further controversy over Hong Kong’s autonomous status.

That's because Hong Kong did not request assistance from the Peoples' Liberation Army.

Rather, a Hong Kong city spokesman said the military initiated the operation as a “voluntary community activity."
