Protesters Seek Slumber in Hong Kong’s Nooks and Crannies

Exhausted Hong Kong protesters have found rest in spots throughout the city, from sleeping on bare concrete to above an MTR station.

A lone protester sleeps on a deserted road adjacent to the protest site as the sun rises on Oct. 6, 2014 in Hong Kong. Pro-democracy supporters continue to occupy the streets surrounding Hong Kong's Financial district. Protesters have threatened to widen their campaign as they continue to call for open elections and the resignation of Hong Kong's Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying.
