Occupy leader: 'No talks until violence against protesters ends'

Leader of the Occupy Central movement in Hong Kong, Benny Tai, says they will consider suspending dialogue with the Hong Kong government if violence against pro-democracy students is not stopped.

Scuffles have broken out in parts of Hong Kong between the pro-democracy protesters and local residents and pro-Beijing supporters.

Many local residents have been angered by the disruption caused by the protests, but Benny Tai told the BBC the opposition was being coordinated by the authorities.
