  • Description

    IN HONG KONG, POLICE TODAY (TUESDAY) MADE ANOTHER LIGHTENING RAID ON A BUILDING IN THE NIGHTCLUB DISTRICT OF HONG KONG ISLAND, AND A GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN SAID THAT THE TARGET WAS CHINESE ORGANISATION. YESTERDAY POLICE MOVED IN TO THE CENTRAL AREA OF THE ISLAND AND STARTED TO REMOVE SLOGANS PAINTED ON THE WALLS OF A BOOKSHOP.

    THE BOOKSHOP WAS OPPOSITE THE CHINA PRODUCTS STORE IN THE CENTRAL DISTRICT. POLICE AT FIRST TRIED TO SCRAPE THE SLOGANS FROM THE WALLS, BUT WITHOUT SUCCESS. THEN THEY PAINTED THEM OUT WITH QUICK-DRYING PAINT.

    TODAY'S RAID, COMING SHORTLY AFTER NIGHTFALL, BROKE THE PEACE OF AN INCIDENT-FREE DAY IN THE COLONY, SCENE OF A WAVE OF ANTI-BRITISH RIOTING AND UNREST DURING THE PAST TWO MONTHS.
