Two protesters were arrested for causing criminal damage after clashing with MTR Corporation employees at Tsoi Yuen Tsuen yesterday. They were the first arrests since the lands officials and MTR Corp moved into the village in Shek Kong, Yuen Long, in November to start building a depot for the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Link. Police said they arrested the two after receiving complaints that metal fences were being damaged.
