Police in Hong Kong have arrested 11 people on charges of fighting in public and assaulting officers. The chief superintendent of the police’s public relations bureau reported the Saturday arrests at his press conference.

Hui Chun-Tak also said more violent incidents also took place. He again called on all citizens to express their opinions peacefully and rationally. Hui stressed that Hong Kong is a society ruled by law, and that no one can be above it, or use unlawful means to vent their discontent. The chief superintendent said that some

Occupy Central protesters are continuing to illegally build and consolidate the street barricades in the Mong Kok district. And he expressed concern that the situation at the occupied sites could deteriorate further.

"The Mong Kok district has now become a very dangerous place. Large-scale conflicts may occur at any time there. When emergency happens, when the street barricades are toppled, can you imagine what consequence will incur? When somebody gets hurt, it can be very difficult for rescuers to arrive because of the barricades. It will hamper the efforts to save people’s lives," Hui said.
