Fires blaze as Hong Kong protesters face police
By the Associated Press
Protesters have set fires on bridges leading to Hong Kong Polytechnic University as they try to keep police from advancing on their campus stronghold.
Orange flames extend the length of a footbridge over the roadway entrance to the Cross-Harbour Tunnel.
Police had shut down access to the area and massed earlier Sunday in an apparent attempt to surround protesters. Some retreated inside the campus while others remained outside to deter any advance.
Another fire was set on a bridge over the toll booths for the tunnel. Protesters have blocked access to the tunnel for days and set fires in the toll booths.
