HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong police threatened on Monday to respond with live bullets if "rioters" used lethal weapons and committed other acts of violence, amid a standoff with protesters who have been hurling petrol bombs outside a university campus.
Police issued a statement urging people they described as rioters to stop using lethal weapons to attack officers, adding that police would respond with force and could use bullets if they did not.
