Protests in Hong Kong over new leader

Many fear a crackdown as Leung Chun Ying prepares to take over as next chief executive.

    Leung Chun Ying is due to take over the leadership of Hong Kong as the city's chief executive in a couple of months.

    Many people are protesting against the change, as they are unhappy with Leung and the elitist method that was used to appoint him.

    They say that he will step up suppression against activists throughout the city.
