Hong Kong protest: Could Beijing send in troops?

In Hong Kong, anti-government protests show no sign of letting up. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets for a seventh weekend in a row. The protests continued after nightfall, with scuffles breaking out when some protesters defied police orders and marched beyond the official finish point.

Could Beijing send troops to Hong Kong to quell the protests?
