Hong Kong's government on Thursday canceled talks with student leaders of a pro-democracy protest that has blocked streets in the city for nearly two weeks, with a senior official saying the discussions were unlikely to be constructive.

The talks, which had been scheduled for Friday, will not go ahead because they have been "seriously undermined" by remarks from the student leaders, said the official, Chief Secretary Carrie Lam.
