Civil servants return to work as protests dwindle in Hong Kong

  • Pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong dwindled and civil servants returned to their offices on Monday, according to media reports.

    Though hundreds of defiant protesters camped outside government offices, they did not block officials from entering the buildings.

    Hong Kong's Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying had warned that offices must be allowed to function by Monday. 

    The government has said it is ready to talk to student representatives, but only if roads are cleared and blockades of offices are lifted.
