Hong Kong protests: Umbrellas raised as rain soaks crowds
Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have taken to the streets for a fifth night, despite pleas from the territory's leader CY Leung to end the demonstrations "immediately".
The campaigners want Beijing to give Hong Kong a free vote for its next leader, something Beijing has rejected.
Umbrellas have become the unofficial icon of the protests, but they were put to a more traditional use on Tuesday during a rainstorm.
The BBC's Babita Sharma says the wet weather failed to deter tens of thousands of people from taking to the streets.
