Thousands in Hong Kong took to the streets to protest the city's chief executive, CY Leung, calling for him to resign.
According to BBC News, the city's leader, who is currently selected by a small committee loyal to Beijing, is under fire for illegal construction carried out on his home. The issue is a sensitive one in Hong Kong, where most families live in cramped conditions because of space issues.

Protesters were also angry about the city's air pollution, which kills 3,000 prematurely every year, reported Bloomberg.
"The chief executive has a serious problem in credibility," Francis Chek, a 24-year-old information technology worker who attended one of the protests, told Bloomberg. "He used one lie to cover up another lie, he has no sincerity at all to tell the public the truth. Enough is enough."
