Attention duty announcers, radio and TV stations:

Please broadcast the following message as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:

     Since around 8pm, a large group of masked rioters have been committing destructive acts extensively and blocking roads in various districts. In Sha Tin, some masked rioters smashed glass in shopping centres, broke through a roll-up gate before storming the Sha Tin Wai MTR Station to wreck facilities including turnstile and ticket machines, and damaged traffic lights. In Tsuen Wan, some masked rioters broke roll-up gates of MTR stations; whereas in Tuen Mun and Tai Koo, they occupied roads illegally.

     Police warn all rioters to stop all illegal acts and will enforce the law resolutely, bringing offenders to justice.
