Hong Kong police have arrested 159 people involved in mass violent activities in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) over the weekend.

“The number of those arrested, including 132 men and 27 women between the ages of 13 and 58”, said Superintendent of Hong Kong police (Public Relations Branch), Tse Chun-chung in a press conference.

Xinhua news agency quoted Chun-chung as saying that all of them were suspected of participating in illegal gatherings, possessing dangerous weapons, and attacking and preventing police from doing their job.

Chun-chung said eight more suspects were arrested today on suspicion of possessing dangerous weapons and violating court injunctions after radical protesters interrupted operations at several MTR stations.

“The latest arrests have brought the number of those arrested to 1,117 people since the riots took place across Hong Kong and sparked chaos from early June,” he said.

Out of the total detention, 16 suspects charged with rioting on Saturday have been arraigned in court today.
