Hong Kong’s chief executive forced to halt annual address amid protests

Furious pro-democracy politicians twice forced Hong Kong's leader to stop delivering a speech laying out her policy objectives in chaotic scenes in the territory.

Carrie Lam's inability to deliver her annual policy address marked a slap in the face for the embattled chief executive.

Mrs Lam had already started delivering the speech when chanting pro-democracy members forced an interruption.

She left the Legislative Council chamber and then came back a few minutes later to try again, only to be interrupted one more time.
