Hong Kong extradition protests: Lam criticises 'organised riots'

Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam criticised protests against a proposed bill that would allow extradition to China, calling them "organised riots".She said the clashes between protesters and police were "unacceptable for any civilised societies".Seventy-two people aged between 15 and 66 were injured in violence, including two men who were in critical condition. The bill's critics cite the alleged use of torture, arbitrary detentions and forced confessions in mainland China.
