31 Hong Kong Protesters Held in Concentration Camp All Got Bone Fracture. By Chapman Chen, HKBNews

Under severe tortures, over 30 teenage detainees of San Uk Ling Detention Center, located on the Hong Kong-China border, have sustained bone fracture, based on news circulating on the net as cited by HKFP and HK01. The spine of one of them has been pressurized such that he is suffering from urinary incontinence. All of them have confessed. But still they are disallowed to make phone calls, to meet their family or lawyer. The femoral bone of several of them is broken, and a few days ago, they were sent to the Northern District Hospital for treatment. According to HK Epoch Times, this "concentration camp" is detaining over 70 protesters arrested in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay on Aug 11, and in Prince Edward MTR Station on Aug 31. Over 30 of them are aged between 16 and 18.

The HK Police later confirmed that 31 detainees of the Center were sent to the hospital and six of them got bone fracture, but denied that they sustained the injury during detention.

A reporter of HK NOW TV has video-recorded how the police planted a bamboo in the backsack of an 18-year-old boy called Ng Cheuk-lam on Aug. 11 evening. Ng's mother later posted on her facebook that her son had not been injured before being arrested. After the arrest, he was beaten until his brain bled and had to be sent to hospital. Ng has been detained exactly in San Uk Ling Center.
