Hong Kong's embattled leader believes protests could last weekssource

HONG KONG (Reuters) Hong Kong authorities will not immediately move to clear tens of thousands of prodemocracy protesters occupying large areas of the city, and will let them stay for weeks if need be, a source with ties to leader Leung Chunying said on Wednesday. In contrast, students spearheading the protest movement ratcheted up pressure on Leung, saying they would occupy more government buildings unless the Beijingbacked chief executive stepped down by Thursday night. Hong Kong protesters are angry about China's decision to limit voters' choices in a 2017 leadership election, and, in a major challenge to Beijing's authority in Hong Kong and beyond, have brought much of the financial hub to a standstill. #United States #Brazil #France #Arabic #Government #markets #Argentina #Latin America #chinese #opinion #city

Divided Chinese eye Hong Kong protests with admiration, anger

HONG KONG (Reuters) For some mainland Chinese in Hong Kong, the sight of thousands of people on the streets protesting for greater democracy is an alien one that has prompted comparisons with the relative lack of political freedom back home. Others are less impressed, and see the mass show of defiance as a dangerous tactic that has shut down large parts of the city and raised the risk of serious confrontation with Hong Kong police. "For the first time in my life I feel close to politics," said a Chinese tourist from Beijing who gave only her surname, Yu #United States #Obama #China #Business #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Government #chinese
