Hong Kong Leader Apologizes Again After Fury

Reuters reports Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam on Tuesday signaled the end of a controversial extradition bill that she promoted and then postponed after some of the most violent protests since the former British colony returned to Chinese rule in 1997.

In a closely watched press conference, Lam apologized for the turmoil but refused to say the bill would be β€œwithdrawn”, only that it wouldn’t be re-introduced during her time in office if public fears persist.
