Will China run out of patience with Hong Kong protests?

Hong Kong’s leader is warning that weeks of protests are putting the territory’s stability in danger.
The demonstrations began 10 weeks ago against a controversial extradition bill.
But they’ve evolved into wider concerns about democracy in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.
Mass sit-ins at the airport have led to the cancellations of flights.
Businesses are feeling the effects of the unrest, with the stock market falling to its lowest level in seven months.
So will the disruptions sway public opinion on the demonstrations?
And will Beijing’s patience run out?
