Hong Kong stages huge National Day democracy protests
Thousands have joined pro-democracy protests which have spread in Hong Kong on China’s 65th National Day.
The protesters want China to withdraw plans to vet candidates for the next Hong Kong leadership election in 2017.
Hong Kong leader CY Leung was heckled as he addressed a flag-raising ceremony, where he urged them to back electoral reforms set out by Beijing.

Mr Shum said student leaders would welcome an opportunity to speak with a Chinese central government official, but not with Mr Leung. –BBC NEWS CHINA
