The protesters, including key student leaders, have been held for unlawful assembly, assaulting or obstructing police.
More than 20 bailiffs joined by police officers on Tuesday started dismantling wooden and metal barricades in Mong Kok, on the western part of Kowloon Peninsula, one of the key protest sites. Police used tear gas and batons to disperse the crowds.

Although the protests have recently subsided, every day dozens of activists staying in tent camps continue disrupting the traffic in key streets of three protest sites in the city.
