Senior Chinese Official Says Hong Kong Is Facing Worst Crisis in 20 Years

After months of violent protests that started over a now-suspended extradition law, Hong Kong is facing its worst crisis in more than 20 years, a Chinese official said on Wednesday. 

Zhang Xiaoming, head of Macau and China’s Hong Kong Affairs, said “Hong Kong’s crisis … has continued for 60 days, and is getting worse and worse”.

Zhang exclaimed that the violence is intensifying and is second since Hong Kong returned from British to Chinese rule in 1997.

All the protest started in April when millions took to streets to protest the extradition law, which may have allowed the Hong Kong residents to be tried in Communist in China. The protestors even demanded the resignation of Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam.
