HANDSHAKE DEAL

Hong Kong Protesters Remove Barricades

After police warned of taking "all necessary measures" to clear streets in Hong Kong, student protesters agreed to remove some of the barricades blocking government buildings. The deal, literally made on a handshake, seems to part of a strategy by protesters to regroup in another part of the city. As the protest enters its tenth day, clashes between police armed with pepper spray and batons have increased, and protesters claim the police have allied with criminal gangs to clear them.
