HONG KONG, Nov 26 – Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong was among a number of student leaders arrested Wednesday as authorities cleared a key demonstration camp in the city’s Mong Kok district.

By midday authorities had cleared barricades and tents from the protest camp in the bustling commercial district, which had been occupied to varying extents since pro-democracy protests erupted nearly two months ago. By mid-afternoon, lanes on the road were re-opened to traffic.

Wong, the 18-year-old founder of the secondary school activist group Scholarism, was arrested along with student leaders Lester Shum and Jason Szeto, according to Hong Kong Federation of Students spokeswoman Yvonne Leung.
