Hong Kong protest group vows new rallies, rejects city leader's comments
Hong Kong's pro-Beijing leader Carrie Lam announces that a widely loathed proposal to allow extraditions to the Chinese mainland "is dead" - but she again stopped short of protester demands to immediately withdraw the bill
"There are still lingering doubts about the government's sincerity or worries (about) whether the government will restart the process with the Legislative Council. So I reiterate here, there is no such plan. The bill is dead," Carrie Lam says
China regarded the violent actions of some protesters in HongKongProtest as an "undisguised challenge" to the one country, two systems formula under which the city is ruled, state television reported on Tuesday.
HongKong Gov Press conference: In response to the question about resignation, Carrie Lam said: I've apologised for the insufficient work surrounding the Bill, there is much more work to be done.
At a 4am press conference, Chief Executive Carrie Lam, Secretary for Security John Lee and police chief Stephen Lo condemned Monday evening's occupation of Hong Kong's Legislative Council.
Police chief Stephen Lo said the withdrawal of police officers from LegCo prior to the evening occupation as a "temporary retreat" due to the environment and the tactics used by protesters.
