Hong Kong organizer arrested, police deployed to quell Tiananmen Square memorials

June 3 (UPI) -- An organizer in Hong Kong was arrested as thousands of police were deployed Friday to enforce a ban on demonstrations for the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre.

Chow Hang-tung, the vice-chair of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Democratic Movements in China, was arrested on suspicion of promoting an annual candlelight vigil marking the 1989 massacre in which the Chinese government deployed the military to crack down on protesters in Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

Chow, 36, was arrested after saying she would go to Victoria Park, where an annual candlelight vigil is usually held, in a personal capacity to mourn the victims killed in the massacre.

Hong Kong broadcaster RTHK reported that police were expected to deploy as many as 7,000 officers to quell efforts to hold memorials.
