Protecting Hong Kong's young protesters: 'Beat us, don't beat the kids'

As Hong Kong's protests deepen, one pastor and a group of mostly Christian volunteers are trying to stop clashes from happening.

Protect the Children volunteers put themselves between protesters and police in a bid to mediate.

But it's getting more difficult as clashes break out earlier in the demonstrations - and the volunteers have inevitably found themselves drawn into the escalating violence.
