Police conduct dispersal operation in Wan Chai
Attention duty announcers, radio and TV stations:
Please broadcast the following message as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:
     A large group of protestors are blocking the junction of Hennessy Road and Fenwick Street, Wan Chai, and throwing petrol bombs and aiming laser beams at Police officers. Such acts pose a threat to the safety of everyone at scene.
     Having given repeated warnings to the protestors but in vain, Police officers have deployed tear gas and used minimum force to disperse protestors.
     Police appeal to everyone at scene to leave immediately and condemn all violent acts by the protestors.
     Residents of the area are advised to stay tuned to the latest situation and if necessary, keep their windows shut and stay indoors.
