Up to 200 anti-government protesters remain barricaded inside a Hong Kong university, surrounded by police, as the standoff continues for a third day. reports citing BBC.

Those who are still inside Polytechnic University (PolyU) are said to be running low on supplies.

Protesters have been inside the campus since last week, initially stopping police from entering by lighting fires and throwing petrol bombs.

Adults who leave face arrest, and some are too scared to come out.

Hundreds of protesters tried to run from the campus on Monday, but many were hit with tear gas and rubber bullets and arrested.
