Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters 'tired but defiant'

There has been continuing unrest in Hong Kong as thousands of pro-democracy campaigners continue their stand off with riot police in the central and financial districts of the city.

Protesters are angry at Chinese government plans to vet candidates in Hong Kong's 2017 elections.
