Views
Tens of thousands of pro-democracy protesters are blocking Hong Kong's streets, shutting down the territory's business hub and ignoring appeals to leave.

The demonstrations have spread to other areas including a shopping district and a heavily populated residential area.

Police said they used tear gas 87 times in clashes with protesters.

The government said riot police were being withdrawn as people had "mostly calmed down".

Protesters - a mix of students and supporters of the Occupy Central pro-democracy movement - are angry at Beijing's plans to vet candidates for Hong Kong's 2017 leadership elections.
