Hong Kong police say they have arrested 18 people, including 12 for a July 1 morning protest that preceded the storming of the city’s legislature.
Police said on Wednesday that 11 men and one woman were taken into custody over a “violent incident” that occurred near the Legislative Council Complex and involved assaulting and obstructing police officers.
They said the offences also included possession of offensive weapons, unlawful assembly and failing to carry identification.
Police said six others were arrested for disrupting a public meeting on June 30.
The semi-autonomous Chinese territory has been wracked for weeks by demonstrations that began over an extradition bill that has since been shelved.
