Hong Kong police 'removed' over protest brutality video: govt

HONG KONG - Hong Kong police officers involved in an apparent assault on a protester have been "removed" from their positions, the city's security chief said Wednesday, after video emerged of a handcuffed man being beaten and kicked.

"Police are concerned over the issue and will carry out a just and fair investigation," Hong Kong's Secretary for Security Lai Tung-kwok told reporters.

"The policemen who are involved in the incident have been removed from their current working positions," he said without specifying how many officers were being probed.
