Hong Kong students, officials set for first talks on political crisis

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Senior Hong Kong government officials will meet student leaders for the first time on Tuesday in an attempt to defuse more than three weeks of pro-democracy protests which have brought parts of the Asian financial centre to a standstill.
