Chinese soldiers on Hong Kong streets for first time since protests began

Soldiers from mainland China were sent on to the streets of Hong Kong for the first time since anti-government protests began about six months ago.
The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) soldiers helped Beijing supporters dismantle a fence and clear roadblocks near Kowloon Tong garrison.
The soldiers rarely leave their barracks – they were last seen a year ago cleaning up after Typhoon Mangkhut.
