UPDATE 1-Hong Kong expected to announce weekend curfew -Global Times
The Hong Kong government did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters paralyzed parts of the Chinese-ruled city for a fourth day on Thursday, forcing schools to close and blocking highways as students built barricades and stockpiled makeshift weapons, setting the stage for campus showdowns.
The Global Times is a tabloid run by the ruling Communist Party's official People's Daily.
