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
