Hong Kong authorities clear part of Admiralty protest site

Court bailiffs in Hong Kong have cleared part of a pro-democracy protest camp in the Admiralty district.

The bailiffs, backed by police, dismantled barricades outside Citic Tower after the building's owners complained about the disruption and were granted a high court injunction.

Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung defended the move, but one legislator, Lee Cheuk-Yan, accused the government of "using the court against the people".
