In Hong Kong, police are working with bailiffs to clear road barriers in the financial hub's Central and Admiralty districts.
 
Secretary for Security Lai Tung-kwok has said the police are ready to reopen roads and restore public order.

Assistant police commissioner Cheung Tak-keung says the occupation has been affecting daily life for people in Hong Kong for over two months, and that order must be restored.

Cheung urged the protesters to pack up their personal belongings and leave the protest site peacefully as soon as possible. He warned them not to resist or confront the police. He reiterated that authorities will take resolute action to maintain order and safety.

The Occupy movement in Hong Kong started September 28. It has blocked several main roads and streets in Kowloon and on Hong Kong island. The results have been serious traffic disruptions, declining tourist numbers, and a slump in local stock market trading.
