Carrie Lam to engage directly with her governing team, members of public can sign up to attend.

Hong Kong's leader said today that she would engage directly with her governing team in a dialogue with the community next week while reiterating calls for an end to the violence that has roiled the city for over three months.said the first session of dialogue would be held next week, adding the sessions would be as open as possible with members of the public able to sign up to attend.

Lam, after months of pressure, finally capitulated to one of the protesters' demands in announcing a full withdrawal of the extradition bill on Sept 4, with Beijing's support. But some said this was too little, too late, and the protests have continued with violent clashes over the weekend, fuelled in part by widespread public anger towards perceived police brutality and abuse of power.Meanwhile, a rare train derailment disrupted services in Hong Kong today, train authorities said, threatening commuter chaos during rush hour in the heart of the Asian financial hub.
