Videos of Peace Centre fight from old incident

Two videos widely shared online since Monday of a group of people fighting outside Peace Centre were from an old case which took place on Aug 27 last year, police said.

Four men, aged between 22 and 32, were arrested in relation to the incident.

"Two of them were arrested for affray, one for causing public nuisance while another was arrested for disorderly behaviour," police said, adding that investigations are still ongoing.

The videos went viral again after they were shared in several Facebook groups with a caption in Chinese that said: "Fighting again!"
