Pro-democracy activists clashed with police and barricaded a tunnel near Hong Kong's government headquarters late Tuesday, expanding their protest zone again after being cleared out of some other streets in the latest escalation of tensions in a weeks-long political crisis.The reports said police sent in reinforcements and used pepper spray to try to disperse the protesters but failed and retreated, leaving the tunnel in the hands of an even bigger crowd of protesters.Appearing to use a strategy of gradually chipping away at the three main protest areas, hundreds of police fanned out in the early hours to take down barriers that the protesters had erected overnight.
