Hong Kong 'vote' to decide future of sit-in

Protesters to conduct 'street vote' amid growing divide in Chinese territory as people come out against demonstrations.

    A vote on Sunday will decide whether protestors in Hong Kong continue their month-long sit-in.

    Demonstrators have been in the streets for weeks, calling for China to overturn its decision to pre-approve all candidates in Hong Kong's 2017 election.

    But now, there is a growing divide in the city as more people come out against the demonstrations.
