HONG KONG (Reuters) - Chinese People's Liberation Army soldiers in shorts and t-shirts joined pro-China residents in Hong Kong on Saturday to clean up barricades and debris after anti-government protests blocked roads, according to broadcaster RTHK.

The soldiers rarely leave their barracks in the Chinese-ruled city, which has been rocked by anti-government protests for months.
