Last campus protesters hold out, as Hong Kong schools reopen

Hong Kong schools reopen

Hong Kong schools have reopened after a six-day shutdown but students were facing transit disruptions as the last protesters remained holed up on a university campus.

City officials tried to restore a sense of normalcy as primary and secondary schools reopened Wednesday.

There were scattered incidents of protesters stopping trains and blocking traffic but on a much smaller scale than the past disruptions.

Some train stations remained shut, and city workers were inspecting damage to a main road tunnel that is closed after protesters torched the toll booths.

A small group of protesters won’t leave Hong Kong Polytechnic University because they would face arrest. They are holdouts from hundreds who took over the campus for days.
