Hong Kong's Lam says Chinese military could step in if uprising worsens

Protestors face police tear gas in Hong Kong

The design featured a red bauhinia, a flower that symbolizes Hong Kong and is on its flag, and a yellow umbrella, a nod to 2014 protests that some refer to as the umbrella revolution.

Chinese cut back on overseas travel and the growth of domestic trips also slowed during the week-long holiday that ended Monday, as protests in Hong Kong and a weaker currency and economy discourage people from traveling out of China.

Responding to complaints that a police officer asked a journalist to remove his mask when tear gas was sacked in Wan Chai on Sunday, Lam said there are bound to be "complications and misunderstandings" when enforcing the new ban.

But the city government has rejected accusations of excessive force.

Police arrived in vans at several locations in the Mong Kok district and marched down the street, some beating shields, but were outnumbered by media and onlookers and withdrew to cheers.

An 18-year-old protester, shot at close range by a riot officer on Tuesday, was charged with rioting and assaulting police. Analysts warned the use of the Emergency Ordinance for the first time in over half a decade set a unsafe precedent.

Lam said protests were severely damaging the economy.

"The police strongly condemn the life-threatening and violent acts of rioters".

The protests, which show no sign of abating, pose the biggest popular challenge to Chinese President Xi Jinping since he came to power in 2012.

She went down to her knees for a loose ball just over five minutes into the game, was subbed out, and went straight to the tunnel. Jonquel Jones converted a 3-point play to open the third quarter and cut the lead to 1, but that was as close as CT would get.

Hong Kong's metro, which usually carries about five million passengers a day, said on Tuesday some stations would remain closed after being targeted in weekend violence.

The continued violence leaves Lam and her backers in Beijing with a hard choice: Either take more drastic steps that could further erode Hong Kong's autonomy and prompt an global backlash, or come up with a political compromise that could produce a leader who challenges its rule over the city. Worldwide rights organizations have criticized the police for their excessively violent actions.

Lam on Friday evoked emergency powers to ban protesters from wearing masks in a hardening of the government's stance on the territory's most disruptive crisis since it reverted to Chinese rule in 1997.

Speaking at the White House Monday, President Trump warned Beijing that U.S.

Residents awoke on October 8 to anti-police graffiti and streets littered with broken bricks and metal barricades from weekend clashes, during which police fired tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannon to subdue petrol bomb-throwing protesters.

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said yesterday that Beijing could turn to the People's Liberation Army to step in and thwart protests that have persisted and escalated for months. Some stations were torched in the protests. -Chinese trade talks would suffer if the mainland does anything to squash HongKong protests as long as demonstrators carry on in a peaceful manner.

About one-tenth of ATMs were vandalised and cash refills may be delayed in some areas due to public events or security concerns, said the Hong Kong Association of Banks (HKAB). Critics fear the emergency law, which gives Lam broad powers to implement any measures she deems necessary, could pave the way for more draconian moves.

During the press conference, Lam told a reporter that she has not ruled out calling on Beijing for assistance, though she and her team were committed to "restore order and calm" through Hong Kong's "legal and political instruments", as well as through her dialogue sessions out in the community.
