Anti-China feeling rises as Hong Kong votes in poll


Hong Kong voters are electing a new legislature, with pro-democracy candidates expected to benefit from weeks of anti-China protests.

The poll comes a day after the government scrapped plans for mandatory Chinese patriotism lessons in schools.

For the first time, 40 of the 70 seats on the governing legislative council will be directly elected.
