Hong Kong arrests 4,283 in crackdown on organized crime

Hong Kong police arrested over 4,200 people over a three-month crackdown on organized crime, the biggest such operation in recent years. The operation worked to cut sources of funding to criminal gangs and involved the search over over 6,300 locations across the city, during which gang-connected discos, karaoke bars, gaming centers, massage parlors, nightclubs, restaurants, and private residential units were shut down. Passports, arms, ammunition, and a wide range of drugs were also recovered.
