HK policy address halted after heckling

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam was forced to halt her annual policy address on Wednesday (October 16) after some lawmakers disrupted the session, shouting and jeering "five demands, not one less" as Lam started her speech.

Rough cut (no reporter narration).

Lam was due to announce a raft of property initiatives in a bid to restore confidence in her administration after more than four months of anti-government protests.

Beijing-backed Lam, who has rejected calls for her to stand down, was due to present her third policy address as escalating violence has plunged the Chinese-ruled city into its biggest political crisis in decades.
