Hong Kong leader apoligises

Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam has apologised for her handling of a controversial extradition bill – but has not offered to withdraw it.

The territory has been rocked by huge protests over the laws which would allow extradition to mainland China.

Demonstrators have been calling for Mrs Lam to resign, BBC reports.

The bill has been suspended but, despite Mrs Lam admitting she had “much to learn”, her statement did not address many of protesters’ demands.
