HONG KONG: China’s Hong Kong military garrison warned protesters on Sunday (Oct 6) they could be arrested for targeting its barracks in the city with laser lights.

In the first direct interaction between the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and protesters, the PLA raised a yellow flag with the arrest warning written in large letters, said a Reuters witness.
