Hong Kong leader urges people not to participate in 'illegal' protests

(Reuters) - Hong Kong’s leader urged people on Sunday not to participate in “illegal” protests as police barricaded city streets to block in thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators after they accelerated a plan to shut down the heart of the global financial hub.

It was Leung Chun-ying’s first address to protesters since students launched a demonstration on Monday to call for greater democracy and demand he meet them to discuss electoral reforms.
