Hong Kong protests: Beijing sends warning to public

For now, China seems willing to be patient in the hope that the momentum of protests will fade, along with international attention.

China has been warning the public that the end could be near for Hong Kong‘s anti-government protests.

Beijing has said it would never allow the chaos to continue indefinitely, prompting concerns that Chinese soldiers could be deployed to the streets of Hong Kong.

Al Jazeera’s Wayne Hay reports from Hong Kong, as he looks at that prospect and the role of the international community.
