The school’s campus “is not a place out of the law,” said Chief Superintendent for Public Relations Tse Chun-chung.Police said they had no choice but to use force and set up cordon lines at a footbridge on the campus Tuesday night, and that they fired the gas when “rioters” didn’t stop throwing bricks at their cordon. The university contacted the police force several times Tuesday to ask the officers to leave, police added. They said they agreed to on condition protesters stopped throwing objects including bricks and fire bombs at them, but the demonstrators persisted.China condemns U.S. bill (3:30 p.m.)Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang condemned U.S. legislation designed to support Hong Kong protesters, urging Washington to immediately stop interfering in the country’s affairs.

The organization said it had made the “difficult decision” after careful consideration as it prioritized the safety of participants and volunteers. It had been scheduled for Friday through Sunday. About 5,000 walkers participate in the event annually.China ratchets up rhetoric (1:31 p.m.)Chinese state media responded to the escalating street violence in Hong Kong with harshly-worded commentaries, condemning some politicians and teachers for emboldening the demonstrators as social media users called protesters “cockroaches” and “thugs.” From late Tuesday to Wednesday morning, major state-owned news outlets including the Communist Party’s Global Times, People’s Daily and Xinhua News Agency ran stories on Hong Kong highlighting destructive behavior by pro-democracy protesters. The Global Times repeated a warning that Beijing could intervene militarily.\--With assistance from Dominic Lau, Gregor Stuart Hunter, Iain Marlow, Dandan Li, Fion Li, Bei Hu, Venus Feng, Shirley Zhao and Hannah Dormido.To contact the reporters on this story: Natalie Lung in Hong Kong at [email protected];Aaron Mc Nicholas in Hong Kong at [email protected];Stephen Engle in Beijing at [email protected] contact the editors responsible for this story: Brendan Scott at [email protected], Chris Kay, Colin KeatingeFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Asylum-seekers in Greece, Italy face years of limbo: EU audit
Posted 3 hours 54 minutes ago

Asylum-seekers crowded into "hotspots" in Greece and Italy face limbo that can drag on for years because of legal bottlenecks and poorly performing EU schemes, a report said Wednesday. The document, by the EU's European Court of Auditors, also found that two agencies meant to assist the two countries with their overflowing camps and caseloads were failing in their missions, partly because of insufficient support from member states. The audit looked at EU projects meant to alleviate the pressure on the so-called hotspots -- camps on Greek islands and in Italy, where migrants' asylum claims were examined and designated refugees were meant to be vetted for relocation to other EU states.

U.K. Domestic Stocks Get a Boost From Nigel Farage, But It’s Not Over Yet
Posted 1 day 6 hours 3 minutes ago

(Bloomberg) -- U.K.-focused stocks are higher on optimism that Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party has a better chance of winning a majority in next month’s election after the Brexit Party said it wouldn’t fight them. But market strategists say it’s not over yet.The market reaction to Monday’s announcement was “solid rather than spectacular,” Raymond James strategist Chris Bailey said by email, noting that the Brexit Party could still hurt the Conservatives by running in seats won by Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party last time around.The domestic FTSE 250 benchmark has held gains of about 0.9% since Farage’s speech, while some stocks considered most-exposed to the U.K. economy jumped on the news. Lender Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and homebuilder Persimmon Plc rose 4% and 3.9% respectively on Monday.“There is now a meaningful amount of optimism being priced in to U.K. assets, particularly sterling and the FTSE 250,” said David Holohan, head of equity strategy at Mediolanum. “That does raise the risk of a negative market development to any political curve balls which could still emerge in the coming days and weeks.”Broadly speaking, it comes down to the pound. In mid-October the correlation between U.K. midcaps and the British currency reached its highest level since the Brexit referendum and has remained there since. Sterling, which jumped as much as 1% on Monday’s news, has now erased the majority of those gains.Here’s what other strategists and investors had to say about the developments.Aberdeen Standard Investments, Andrew MilliganThe announcement from Nigel Farage has altered the election calculations at the margin and hence had a noticeable impact on sterling and a ripple effect through other asset classes, for example the relative attractiveness of domestic versus external facing stocks.Lack of a major movement in sterling versus other currencies, or more broadly U.K. financial assets versus their international counterparts, since the campaign was announced suggests that few new positions have yet been placed by global investors. Markets are still in watch-and-wait mode.Liberum Capital Ltd., Andrew CouryYesterday’s rally shows that the fears of a Corbyn government still linger. The outcome of the election is not clear cut as Conservatives will need to target Labour leavers to comfortably secure their majority.Should the Conservatives win a majority, expect domestics to rally alongside sterling, including banks, consumer discretionary, house-builders and real estate.Allianz Global Investors, Marcus Morris-EytonWould still expect to see a strong relief rally if Boris Johnson is able to win a majority. The market is pricing in a reduced probability of no-deal Brexit occurring, but it is still far from clear as to whether the Conservatives achieve a majority government.London and Capital Asset Management Ltd., Roger JonesSmall uptick in sterling to news looks correct as it is likely to increase the probability of a Conservative majority by a small proportion. The result still looks to be in the balance.Investors have become cautious on polls after the Brexit referendum and Trump election. Suspect there will be a wait-and-see approach by investors until the outcome becomes clearer.U.K. small-cap stocks look interesting after lagging mid-cap domestics. With the tail risk of no-deal Brexit removed, a Conservative majority would boost U.K. smallcaps and a hung parliament would have minimum fundamental impact.Peel Hunt, Ian WilliamsThe reasonably measured equity market reaction to Farage’s announcement suggests a Conservative majority was already at least half priced-in.There has been a decent bounce in mid-caps, but nothing overdone. This reflects increased betting on an overall majority.While consensus is generally that sterling could reach $1.35 if there’s Conservative win followed by Brexit on Jan. 31, “I think that might be overdoing it” given broadly soft growth and jobs data, last week’s tone from the Bank of England and the overhang on markets from trade wars.Makor Capital Markets SA, Stephane Barbier de la SerreThe current stamina -- possibly exuberance -- of U.K. stocks at this juncture is likely more linked to ongoing all—in risk-on momentum on European stocks in general than to idiosyncratic factors.Another hung Parliament on Dec. 13 remains the most likely scenario, and should that scenario occur, U.K. stocks and currency would then face a pretty harsh and fairly indiscriminate correction.To contact the reporters on this story: Joe Easton in London at [email protected];Kit Rees in London at [email protected];Ksenia Galouchko in London at [email protected];Michael Msika in London at [email protected] contact the editor responsible for this story: Beth Mellor at [email protected] more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

The Pew Research Center said the number grew from 2014, when about 3-3.7 million resided in Europe, and peaked in 2015-16 during the refugee crisis when some 1.3 million people arrived, mostly from war-torn countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Also, the European Union and Turkey signed a deal designed to keep millions of migrants in Turkey from coming to Europe, and many asylum seekers, especially Syrians, received asylum or residency rights in Germany and other European countries.
