Hong Kong protests 'humiliating' for China

Hundreds of pro-democracy campaigners are camped out on the streets of Hong Kong ahead of a government deadline for them to withdraw.

Many suspect that police will try to remove them by force in the coming hours.

The protesters are angry at China's plans to vet candidates when Hong Kong holds elections in 2017.

The BBC's Carrie Gracie described the protests as "humiliating and embarrassing" for China.
