Hong Kong leader apologises for causing conflict and disputes

PTI
Embattled Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam apologised today for the way her administration tried to pass a law allowing extraditions to China, the cause of unprecedented protests and clashes this week.

A statement from her office said, the chief executive admitted that shortcomings in the government's work has lead to a lot of conflict and disputes in Hong Kong society and has disappointed and distressed many citizens.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of thousands of people rallied in central Hong Kong today against a reviled extradition law to pile pressure on the city's embattled leader, despite her weekend climbdown. The protesters marched through the streets calling for the resignation of chief executive.


Although Lam, a pro-Beijing appointee, offered a rare concession yesterday, she stopped short of committing to permanently scrapping the controversial law.


Her gesture was swiftly rejected by protest leaders who called on her to resign, shelve the bill entirely and apologise for police using tear gas and rubber bullets earlier in the week.
