Hong Kong Protests: A look back in pictures

Hong Kong student protest leaders Joshua Wong, of Scholarism, and Lester Shum, from the Hong Kong Federation of Students, were arrested on Wednesday as police cleared pro-democracy demonstrators from the Nathan Road protest site. On Tuesday, police moved in to clear part of a pro-democracy protest camp in the bustling district of Mong Kok, which has been the scene of some of the most violent clashes between demonstrators and the authorities.

The protests, which began in September, drew well over 100,000 people at its peak. For weeks, protesters camped out on streets and blocked key roads leading into three of Hong Kong's most economically and politically important districts.

We look back at the protests in pictures.
