Hong Kong protests pushing city to ‘very dangerous situation’: leader


HONG KONG, Aug 5, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Hong Kong’s embattled pro-Beijing
leader struck a defiant tone on Monday as strikes and travel chaos hit the
city, condemning pro-democracy protesters for pushing the finance hub to a
“very dangerous situation” with their weeks of rallies.

“Such extensive disruptions in the name of certain demands or
uncooperative movement has seriously undermined Hong Kong’s law and order and
are pushing our city, the city that we all love and many of us helped to
build, to the verge of a very dangerous situation,” chief executive Carrie
Lam told reporters.
