Hong Kong police arrest four students for 'promoting terrorism'

University council leaders had offered tribute to officer's attacker

HONG KONG (AP) -- Four members of a Hong Kong university student union were arrested Wednesday on accusations of advocating terrorism when they paid tribute to an attacker who stabbed a police officer and then killed himself, police said.

Police arrested four males between 18 and 20 years old who were committee members and members of the student council at the University of Hong Kong, said Li Kwai-wah, senior superintendent of the police national security division. He said the arrests were in relation to a council meeting that "promoted terrorism."
