Religious leaders in Hong Kong say they are willing to mediate talks between pro-democracy protesters and the government after more reports of violence as police continued to try to disperse demonstrators.

“We are willing to listen to opinions of both sides, try to find a basis for common dialogue in order to help both sides to start dialogue and to achieve peace,” religious leaders said in a statement on Wednesday October 15. For this reason, Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist, Confucian, Taoist and Muslim leaders met earlier on Wednesday.
