The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, which was overrun in an attempt to paralyze one of the city’s primary traffic arteries, has been partially reopened after being sealed off for almost two weeks. Police said they seized hundreds of bottles of chemicals and thousands of gasoline bombs on the campus, now free of rioters.

Hong Kong police, who had sealed the campus on the evening of Nov 17, lifted their cordon around the university’s Hong Hum campus on Friday afternoon after technicians finished collecting evidence and removing dangerous items left on campus by the radical protesters.

It could take five to six months to finish the cleanup and repair work, said PolyU President Teng Jin-guang, who described the university as the institution hardest hit by the city’s political unrest.
