Hong Kong leader seeks understanding after latest clashes

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam on Monday (July 15) called called on citizens to understand that the political situation has changed after what she says is a cessation of all work on an extradition bill.

She spoke at a hospital where three police officers were being treated for injuries sustained in the latest clashes.

Lam said protesters involved in the clashes with the police could be described as "rioters", and that she supported police upholding the law and seeking those responsible.

Hong Kong has been rocked by large and sometimes violent street protests over the past month to oppose the extradition bill, plunging the former British colony into its biggest political crisis since it was handed back to China in 1997.
