Watch live: Hong Kong chief Carrie Lam speaks after mass protests

18 Jun 2019 euronews

Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam made a "sincere and solemn apology" to citizens on Tuesday, after an estimated crowd of up to two million protested against measures that would enable authorities to send some suspects to stand trial in Chinese courts.

"I need to do a better job," she told reporters — but she gave no indication that she would bow to the demands of pro-democracy activists and resign.

The 62-year-old issued a written apology at the weekend and said the proposals were being shelved but refused to cancel them altogether.
