Hong Kong residents face difficulties

Kwok, a 33-year-old woman, walks up a staircase next to her 80-square-feet (7-square-metre) subdivided flat inside an industrial building in Hong Kong Jan 19, 2012. Kwok pays a monthly rent of HK$1,700 ($219) for the flat. A total of 38 residents staged an ongoing protest against the government's decision urging them to leave due to illegal subdivision in the industrial building for residential purposes, without providing them a place to stay, according to a local newspaper. Amid a slumping property market, Hong Kong is still one of the most expensive cities for buying flats. [Photo/Agencies]
