Protests outside residence of Hong Kong leader CY Leung

Protesters have gathered outside of the residence of Hong Kong's leader, CY Leung, in protest at his recent comments.

Mr Leung argued in an interview that poorer residents in the Chinese territory should not be given too much political power.

He argued this would prevent populist policies, but demonstrators have seen it as proof that the political system is fixed to help the rich.
