Police and customs are hunting for seven men, believed to be Mongolians, who fled after a struggle with customs officers during a raid on hawkers selling pirated video discs at a Central pier yesterday morning. The officers arrested a hawker for allegedly selling pirated discs in Man Kwong Street when six other men, believed to be part of the gang, intervened. A struggle ensued during which the seven men fled - the arrested man handcuffed on one wrist. Police were later called. Five officers were slightly injured.
