Joshua Wong, leader of the student movement, pauses as he talks to reporters outside the government headquarters office in Hong Kong October 9, 2014. Democratic lawmakers in Hong Kong demanded anti-graft officers investigate a $6.4 million business payout to Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying on Thursday, as political fallout grows from massive student-led protests calling for democracy in the Chinese-controlled city.
