Hong Kong Leader Warns Protesters Not To Push City Into 'Abyss'

Hong Kong leader warns protesters not to push city into 'abyss'

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has warned anti-government protesters not to push the city into an "abyss", in an emotional press conference on Tuesday.

Ms Lam said Hong Kong had "reached [a] dangerous situation" and that violence during protests would push it "down a path of no return".

She was met with hostility as she dodged questions by reporters, who repeatedly shouted and cut her off.

Meanwhile protests are continuing for a fifth day at the city's busy airport.

Mass unrest has rocked Hong Kong for 10 weeks and shows no signs of abating.

Large protests started in response to a proposed extradition bill, which has now been suspended, but have evolved into a more demanding pro-democracy movement.

Protests are fuelled by fear that the freedoms Hong Kong enjoys as a special administrative region of China are being eroded.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Protests at the airport as Hong Kong is pushed deeper into turmoil

Check-in for all flights is cancelled again as protesters once again block up the departure and arrival areas.

Hong Kong airport has cancelled all outbound flights for a second day after a mass sit-in by thousands of pro-democracy protesters.

The airport reopened on Tuesday morning after Monday's shutdown - but with many flights cancelled.

However, protesters blocked passengers from getting to the security gate and check-in services were suspended again at 4.30pm.
