Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam defends police use of force

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam on Saturday said the police have used "appropriate force of weapon" to respond to protesters in large-scale events and that the government will not tolerate any unlawful or violent acts, even by the police. In an interview with public broadcaster RTHK, Hong Kong's chief executive Lam said police officers have not deliberately adopted violence but have chosen "appropriate" measures for when rioters use violence. "We should have faith in the rule of law of Hong Kong, which also includes obeying the law," Lam added.
