Hong Kong protesters torch planned virus quarantine building

Hong Kong protesters torch planned virus quarantine buildingA group of protesters set alight the lobby of a newly built residential building in Hong Kong on Sunday that authorities planned to use as a quarantine facility for the coronavirus outbreak. A Reuters witness saw several masked protesters, clad in black, rush into the public housing block in the Fanling district near to the border with China, and set alight a Molotov cocktail before running out. As fears about the virus outbreak intensify, calls have grown for the Hong Kong government to block the financial hub’s border with mainland China to minimize the risk of infection.
