Five Hong Cong teenagers have been arrested in connection with the death of a man who died last month after being hit during the clashes between the pro and anti-government demonstrators, the Hong Kong police informed global media.
"Many citizens must question why they have to pay this bill for police officers".
Saturday's operation came as police said three men and two women, aged 15 to 18, had been arrested in suspected connection with the death of a 70-year-old man who was hit by a brick during a fight between masked protesters and Sheung Shui residents last month.

Carrie Lam, Hong Kong's chief executive, arrived in Beijing on Saturday, marking her first visit to China's capital since her party suffered a severe blow in recent Hong Kong's elections last month.
