Hong Kong protests drag on

Police drag a protester along a road after detaining her during an attempt to escape the campus of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in the Hung Hom district of Hong Kong on Monday. Hong Kong riot police swooped on pro-democracy protesters trying to flee a university they had set ablaze, in one of the most violent confrontations seen in nearly six months of unrest. Hundreds of demonstrators clashed throughout the day with police who had threatened to use deadly force, as protests also flared in other parts of the city.
