CIEE Security Alert – Hong Kong
According to emerging media reports, anti-government demonstrations against extradition laws have been met with a heavy-handed response by hundreds of armed riot police. Video and photo imagery shows police firing rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the tens of thousands of protesters that have gathered. Reports indicate some protesters have been throwing water bottles and charging security forces with umbrellas.
At this time, we have no reason to believe that any CIEE participants have been impacted by this incident. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and remain in contact with our participants to ensure their ongoing safety.
