Hong Kong protests: Chief Executive Leung 'ready for talks'

Hong Kong's government is ready for new talks with student protesters next week, its chief executive has said.

CY Leung was speaking after scuffles between protesters and police continued for a second night on a major road near government buildings.

But he warned that the Beijing would not withdraw its decision to vet candidates for the 2017 election and that the Hong Kong administration could not "make something that is not in the basic law possible".
