Student protesters are abandoning a barricade they set up earlier this week at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Many of the protesters departed Friday for unknown reasons. They continued to demand that the government hold local elections on Nov. 24. Meanwhile, police are investigating the death of a 70-year-old man who was hit on the head with a brick on Thursday night while he filmed clashes between protesters and workers trying to clear the street. In London, the Chinese Embassy said activists pushed Hong Kong Justice Secretary Teresa Cheng to the ground, injuring her hand.
