The second is the Central Government Complex. Police have issued warnings and are standing by to keep the buildings secure. To help you follow the action as it unfolds, here’s a list of some of our favorite sources:

Live-blog: The Wall Street Journal’s China Realtime blog is posting articles and photos from the ground.

Live TV feed with commentary: The BBC has a scrolling list of text updates, as well as live video from Hong Kong, including commentary from various officials and experts.
