Summary

6 Min ReadHONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong police shot and critically wounded a protester and a man was set on fire on Monday in violence that prompted leader Carrie Lam to denounce “enemies of the people” and drew a chilling warning from a senior Chinese newspaper editor. government will yield to pressure, to satisfy the so-called political demands, I’m making this statement clear and loud here: that will not happen.” Police fired tear gas in the narrow streets of the Central business district where some protesters, crouching behind umbrellas, blocked streets as office workers crowded the pavements and hurled anti-government abuse. The editor in chief of China’s Global Times tabloid, published by the state-owned People’s Daily, said Hong Kong police had nothing to be scared of. “They can go into Hong Kong to provide support at any time.” Police fired live rounds at close range at protesters in Sai Wan Ho on the eastern side of Hong Kong island and one 21-year-old protester was wounded. “The live rounds fired by police are clear evidence of reckless use of force,” Amnesty International Hong Kong said in a statement.
