The High Court in Hong Kong ordered protesters to clear roads at an illegal assembly site in Mong Kok on Monday.

It is the demonstrators' only remaining protest site in Kowloon, and the area is considered by police to be on the verge of riots.

Justice Jeremy Poon Shiu-chor handed down the ruling, saying the court has to strike a balance on the right to use public streets. He also said the blockade is a public nuisance that is seriously affecting taxi drivers' income.
