From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 3 October 2014

After five days of protests which have brought Hong Kong to a standstill, government officials have agreed to meet with pro-democracy leaders. Thousands of people have massed on the streets outside key government buildings and called for the resignation of the chief executive, CY Leung. They are angry at China's plans to vet candidates for polls in 2017. The protestors had threatened to occupy government buildings if Mr Leung didn't step down. Tony Sabine, news anchor with TVB Pearl News in Hong Kong and freelance local journalist Isabel Wong talk about the situation.
