Attention duty announcers, radio and TV stations: Please broadcast the following message as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:      At around 5pm today (November 2), a large group of rioters used umbrellas as cover and repeatedly threw petrol bombs towards police officers at multiple locations on Hong Kong Island. Besides setting fire on barricades, shops and MTR stations in various locations, masked rioters also hurled bricks at police officers and police vehicles.           Having given repeated warnings to the rioters in vain, Police officers have deployed tear gas and Specialised Crowd Management Vehicles to disperse them. Police warn the rioters to stop their illegal acts. A number of arrests have been made and arrest action will continue as appropriate.
