Hong Kong protests: US-China divisions

Student demonstrators in Hong Kong have vowed to step up their mass pro-democracy protests if Chief Executive CY Leung does not resign.

Thousands continue to protest on the streets against China's vetting of candidates for 2017's leadership poll.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who is in Washington meeting US Secretary of State John Kerry, insisted the protests were "China's internal affairs".

Mr Kerry said he hoped the Hong Kong government would "exercise restraint and respect for the protesters' right to express their views peacefully".
