Hong Kong leader CY Leung has urged pro-democracy protesters to “immediately” stop their campaign, as huge crowds continue to bring parts of the territory to a standstill.

The huge crowds defied government calls to go home after Sunday’s chaotic scenes, bringing key districts of the Asian financial hub to a standstill as they vowed to stay put until the Chinese government grants them free elections.

Sunday’s violence saw riot police fire clouds of tear gas as they struggled to control the protesters, in one of the biggest ever challenges to Beijing’s rule of the semi-autonomous city.
