Hong Kong security police on Thursday raided the museum that houses exhibits commemorating Beijing's deadly crackdown on Tiananmen Square in 1989, a day after they arrested four members of the group that ran the venue.

Officers from the city's newly set-up national security police went into the now-shuttered June 4 museum Thursday morning for a search and cordoned off the building entrance.
