Hong Kong police swooped at dawn to partially clear a democracy protest site Friday, tearing down tents and barricades hours after the city's embattled leader reopened his offer of talks to end nearly three weeks of disruptive demonstrations.The dawn raid was met with no resistance from demonstrators, and came as the city's Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying renewed his offer for talks with student protesters a week after abruptly pulling out.But the swift police operation risks throwing the talks into doubt as student leaders decide on their response to the raid, and defiant protesters remained on one side of the multi-lane road that housed the camp. City authorities pulled out of talks with student protesters last week, plunging the two sides deeper into an impasse with no obvious ways out.On Friday protest group Occupy Central released a dossier with pictures of six other protesters who claimed police used excessive force on them earlier this week.
