Bangalore, Oct 6: Hong Kong civil servants returned to work at the government's headquarters on Monday as pro-democracy protests which have paralysed the area for more than a week subsided in the face of a deadline to disperse.
Although numbers dwindled dramatically at the city's main protest sites, many said they would return later in the day to resume their campaign for free elections, which has seen tens of thousands of people pour onto the streets.
