China's foreign minister has issued a stern warning over the growing number of "illegal" pro-democracy demonstrations taking place in Hong Kong.
Wang Yi issued the warning while visiting Washington, and said the protests were an "internal affair".
Secretary of state John Kerry urged Hong Kong authorities to exercise restraint when dealing with protesters of the so-called "umbrella revolution".
Pro-democracy protests, made up of mostly students and the Occupy movement, began last week when Beijing announced it would be vetting all candidates for the 2017 chief executive of Hong Kong elections.
More and more people have joined the protests and numbers swelled yesterday, which was a national holiday. Protesters are calling for the chief executive Leung Chun-ying to step down.
The family of murdered teenager Alice Gross have said they are "completely devastated" by the loss of their youngest daughter.
Jose Gross and Rosalind Hodgkiss thanked the community for their support and urged any members of the public to contact the police if they had information which would help catch their daughter's killer.
In a statement released via the Metropolitan police, the family, who live in west London, said they were "struggling to come terms" with why anyone would want to hurt 14-year-old Alice.
We have been left completely devastated by the recent developments and it is difficult to comprehend that our sweet and beautiful daughter was the victim of a terrible crime. Why anyone would want to hurt her is something that we are struggling to come to terms with.
Alice was a loving and much loved daughter and sister, a quirky live spark of a girl, beautiful inside and out. She was a funny companion, a loyal friend, both passionate and compassionate, and so talented with a bright future ahead of her. She brought so much joy to our family and those who knew her.
We still don't know who is responsible for this crime and we ask that people continue to help the police by giving them information that could help bring the perpetrator to justice.
We would like to thank all those that have supported us in our efforts to find Alice, especially the local community; it is comforting to know that so many people care.

Introducing minimum unit pricing in England would be up to 50 times more effective than the Government's recent ban on below cost selling, as a way of tackling problems caused by cheap alcohol, researchers from the University of Sheffield say.
The ban on below cost selling has a small effect on population health, saving an estimated 14 deaths and 500 admissions to hospital per year. In contrast, a 45p minimum unit price is estimated to save 624 deaths and 23,700 hospital admissions. Vanessa Francis reports.
