Hong Kong Chief Apologizes Again

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam attends a news conference in Hong Kong, China, June 18, 2019.

REUTERS/Tyrone Siu HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday said she had heard the people โ€œloud and clearโ€ and apologized again for recent upheaval after some of the most violent protests in the city against an extradition bill that she had promoted.

The bill would allow case-by-case extraditions to mainland China and despite its postponement, about two million people spilled on to the streets on Sunday, demanding Lam scrap the bill entirely and step down.
