Dozens of people were arrested in a Hong Kong shopping district on Thursday for defying a ban on protests as the restless financial hub marked China's National Day, police said.

"After repeated warnings were ignored, police on scene arrested at least 60 people, including two district councillors, on suspicion of 'participating in an unauthorized assembly' and other related public security crimes," police said in a statement on Facebook.
