Hong Kong protest site draws curious tourists

Despite fears protest would damage city's reputation as a global business hub, blockade becomes a tourist attraction.

    Hong Kong's democracy activists have paralysed parts of the city following weeks of protest against the city's China-backed leadership.

    Some feared the protests would damage its reputation as an international hub for visitors.

    But now the street blockades have become a tourist attraction.
