Twenty-three students were detained and more than 30 police officers and demonstrators hospitalized early Monday after Taiwan’s antiriot police began evicting protestors from the Executive Yuan, Apple Daily reported Monday. The protestors tried to occupy the governing cabinet’s office in a show of opposition to the handling of a cross-strait services pact. Premier Jiang Yi-huah condemned what he said was illegal and violent action by the protestors, the report said. Some students have occupied the Legislative Yuan since Tuesday.
