Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung refuses to resign

Hong Kong's Chief Executive CY Leung has said he will not resign amid calls from pro-democracy protesters for him to step down.

He did say his government was willing to hold talks with the protesters.

Mr Leung warned that attempts to move on or occupy government buildings would be met with a police response.

The chief executive spoke at a news conference on Thursday shortly before the protesters' midnight deadline for his resignation expired.
