(Worthy News) - Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam warned Tuesday the Chinese military could step in if an uprising for democratic reforms in the city worsens, but she reiterated the government still hopes to resolve the crisis on its own without seeking mainland intervention.
Lam urged foreign critics to accept the reality that the four months of protests marked by a sharp escalation in violence was no longer "a peaceful movement for democracy."
“This kind of violence has become limitless and lawless,” Lam told reporters before a meeting of the city’s Executive Council, according to Bloomberg. Hong Kong government “will use its greatest determination to halt these violent acts,” she said. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
