Carrie Lam has walked out of the Legislative Council for second time after interruptions

The chair has suspended the Legco again and Carrie Lam has left the building for a second time after pro-democracy lawmakers once again interrupted her speech.

They are now standing as a group in front of the press and chanting: “Five demands, not one less” and “Carrie Lam! Step down!”
