Hong Kong - Prison officers in Hong Kong overpowered a group of Vietnamese boat people resisting deportation. Attempts to remove the group were thwarted on Monday when hundreds of inmates at the detention camp defied tear gas to form a human wall. A helicopter hovered overhead and ambulances stood by as 170 officers, flanked by 400 police, entered the camp yesterday and herded about 1,000 inmates into their huts. Reuter
