Hong Kong police trim pro-democracy protest zone

Hong Kong police trimmed a protest zone that has paralyzed traffic on key roads in the financial district for more than two weeks, removing some barricades used by pro-democracy protesters to allow some traffic through the area on Monday.

Police stressed that the dawn operation was not meant to clear the protesters, and said it was only to relieve traffic congestion as commuters returned to work. It was not immediately clear if police will take further action, but the move appeared to be a test of how the protesters would react.
