Even as Hong Kong returns to normal(ish), something is missing: live music. That's tough for working musicians https://t.co/hotERtMMbN

Expecting a baby while covering the #HongKongProtests was stressful -- and that was before the #CoronavirusOutbreak hit a city scarred by memories of SARS. My essay for @NYTParenting https://t.co/HPMzVli0Gp @nytimesworld @nytimes

#HongKongProtests + #Coronavirus = not exactly the best time to have a baby. "Let's move to the country," my wife said, but it was too late for that. My @NYTParenting essay: https://t.co/HPMzVlzC4Z @JessGrose

As mothers cry, Hong Kong police are encircling protesters trying to escape a police siege at a university. How did the city on fire get here? Our story, w/ @mikeives @nytmay @Katherineli1997. Photos @LamYikFei. And help from @paulmozur @ezracheungtoto. https://t.co/YWtoI4KaFj

Along the highway to Poly U we have protesters who came to flank the police and now more police coming in behind the protesters. It would have made for a tough moment for protesters, but they got a warning police were coming and took off mostly down a side street. https://t.co/rtwXXayabi

The call now is for supporters to stream in from all directions to free the students and others on the campus. What we’re seeing along the highway is one stream of protesters responding to a call to arms that’s supposed to flank police on all sides. Police seem aware of this. https://t.co/LuJ8fBesFL

Hong Kong police now threatening to use “lethal force” to arrest those inside besieged campus who don't surrender. Tense moment. https://t.co/V35IGUrCoS

After reading chilling China-Xinjiang story by @austinramzy & @ChuBailiang, I reread our 2014 story on Xi at Xinjiang work forum. Xinhua said Xi spoke of new “special policy” in south Xinjiang w/ “special measures” to “deal with special things.” The camps? https://t.co/z0l381FSc5 https://t.co/QEDEnoB14d

Simply incredible reporting by @austinramzy and @ChuBailiang on a massive leak of documents from Xinjiang that show the government’s ruthlessness, not only against Uighurs but also against some Han officials who disagreed w/ the harshness of the crackdown. https://t.co/uAD7gQ0a5k

Smells like teen spirit: Young protesters with catapults, bows-n-arrows are holding the fort, #GameofThrones style, on a #HongKong university campus; police say one officer was hit with an arrow. (Yes, this is actually happening.) https://t.co/V35IGUrCoS #HongKongProtests

Another tense Sunday in #HongKongProtests. Lots of concern in pro-dem circles over the Chinese military's highly choreographed cleanup session on the streets y'day: https://t.co/V35IGUrCoS

@nytimesworld By coincidence, Hong Kong govt issued press release today promoting film series about "multifarious arrays of weaponry" in local cinema https://t.co/O7dfQHWYXt

In what look like medieval sieges, some Hong Kong activists are building on-campus fortifications for expected battles w/ police. Think catapults, bows-n-arrows, meat cleavers, etc. (Yes, way.) Check back for @nytimesworld updates https://t.co/XFqalMxEzt #HongKongProtests

NEW: Hong Kong police broke an unspoken rule to keep off campuses. Now universities are medieval citadels under siege. Students facing riot police hurl Molotov cocktails & practice firing flaming arrows. w/ @ezracheungtoto & amazing @LamYikFei photos. https://t.co/bBx1pflGHq

Belatedly, our @NYTObits obituary for U Tun Lwin, Myanmar's "people’s weatherman." Best comparison may be @alroker, but that doesn't quite work, partly because extreme weather has special resonance in a country where a 2008 cyclone killed 140K+ pple. RIP. https://t.co/zw54yI7WFz
