Protesters in Hong Kong threaten to escalate demonstrations

Protesters in the 4 day demonstration in Hong Kong have demanded that the city's leader resign by midnight today, or they will escalate their protests by moving from the streets to occupy government buildings. Such a move may provoke a violent reaction by security forces.

Travellers should avoid the main streets in central Hong Kong, as well as the vicinity of government buildings.
