Carrie Lam gives statement on one of worst days of protest violence
HKSAR's Chief Executive Carrie Lam gave statement on what is said to be one of the worst days of violence since protests erupted in the city in June. Lam condemned what she called relentless destruction to society. She said hurting innocent people would not help the cause of protesters. She confirmed that two people are in critical condition. The first person was shot by a police officer, while the second member of the public was set on fire by a black-clad protester. Lam said the escalating violence will not make government yield to pressure.
