Police appeal to everyone to leave Hong Kong Polytechnic University
     At around 8am today (November 18), a large group of masked rioters who have been holed up in Hong Kong Polytechnic University suddenly charged at Police cordons, many holding petrol bombs. After repeated warnings were ignored, Police officers deployed the minimum necessary force to disperse the rioters, including the use of tear gas. The rioters are hereby warned to stop their unlawful acts. 
     To ensure public safety, Police appeal to everyone inside the Polytechnic University to drop their weapons and dangerous items, remove their gas masks and leave via the top level of Cheong Wan Road South Bridge in an orderly manner. They should follow Police instructions and must not charge at Police cordons.
