An armored police vehicle was set ablaze late Sunday by a barrage of petrol bombs as it tried to clear a flyover of pro-democracy protesters near a flashpoint university campus.

As flames engulfed the front of the vehicle the driver slowly reversed, according to live-streamed video of the incident shown by several local media, but it was not immediately clear if the fire was extinguished.
