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.

Joshua Wong, leader of the student movement, rests after delivering a speech, as protesters block the main street to the financial Central district, outside the government headquarters building in Hong Kong October 4, 2014. Fresh scuffles broke out on Saturday between Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters and opponents of the week-long demonstrations, reigniting concerns that the Chinese-controlled city's worst unrest in decades could take a violent turn. The protests have been largely peaceful since police last Sunday fired tear gas at crowds demanding Beijing grant Hong Kong the unfettered right to choose its own leader. But the mood turned ugly on Friday at the most volatile protest site, in the teeming suburb of Mong Kok. REUTERS/Tyrone Siu (CHINA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST CRIME LAW)
