Hong Kong arrests mount to 1,100 as campus siege continues

Beijing denounces court ruling against mask ban

HONG KONG -- About 1,100 people were arrested in Hong Kong over the past day, police said Tuesday, including hundreds of protesters who surrendered at a university that had been the scene of violent clashes with police since the weekend.

In other developments on Tuesday, Beijing condemned a Hong Kong court ruling that declared the ban on face masks unconstitutional, the city's police commissioner hit back at "fake news" that he alleged was undermining the force's credibility, and concerns are growing that the government will postpone Sunday's local elections.
