Hong Kong's leader issues rare apology
CNN reports Hong Kong's leader has issued a rare public apology in the wake of repeated record-breaking protests that called for the withdrawal of a controversial extradition bill with China.
Two days after protest organizers estimated 2 million people took to the streets to demand the bill be fully withdrawn and that she step down, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said she wanted to offer the city her "most sincere apology." She said: "I have heard you loud and clear and have reflected deeply on all that has transpired." She had earlier stated that the process was suspended and there was no timetable for its resumption.
