8:02 am
nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong so i hope community. will agree with us that with these violent acts that we have seen it is right for us to condemn it on hong kong's police chief justified the temporary retreat which some say creates a gap for protesters to storm the council building. we found that there were some protests tampering with the electricity box and we find that some of the lights have gone out. and in fear of. that the protest while charging someone turned off the like i'm afraid that there will be people stepping people there were already a toxic powder. attack on my office in the afternoon so without knowing whether this is toxic. tech we have no other choice
8:03 am
but to temporarily retreat from that cold well sarah clarke is standing by for us in hong kong will also be live in beijing with our correspondent katrina you for the latest reaction from china but 1st when hate takes a look back at how monday's events unfolded. after another day of protests in hong kong police ran out of patience with tear gas and battens they moved in to clear the area around the legislative council hong kong's parliament it's become the focal point of anti-government rallies over the past 3 weeks because protesters believe it's now largely controlled by mainland china this time they had little choice but to flee and quickly disappeared into the nights. the catalyst for the police action was a decision by the protesters to seize control of the legislative council after hours of smashing windows and doors they went inside vandalizing the building as
8:04 am
they went after several protests over the past 3 weeks some of them turning violent clashes between protesters and police this group was able to force its way into the debating chamber in the legislative council facing very little resistance along the way they say they had no choice but to escalate the situation after becoming frustrated that the government wasn't listening to them at the. for many years and many young people. they didn't expect that it took so long for the government. to respond there are rallies every year on july the 1st which is the day 22 years ago that hong kong was handed back to china by great britain but there were a bunch of large numbers this year because of a proposed extradition law it would allow suspects in criminal cases to be sent to mainland china to face trial in the justice system that critics say is deeply flawed. the bill has been suspended but opponents want it scrapped altogether and
8:05 am
the resignation of hong kong's chief executive who spoke earlier on monday at a ceremony to mark the anniversary of long gun your 1st incident that happened in recent months has led to control of the free and disputes between the public and the government this has made me fully realize that i as a politician i have to remind myself all the time the need to cross a public event missing accurately the system agreed between great britain and china 22 years ago was one country 2 systems for 50 years but protesters believe that deal is being pushed aside by kerry lamb and 2 governments who they say are increasingly being dictated to by beijing. soon after police moved into the latest rally it was over the streets in the legislative council empty their defiance dispersed but they left their mark on what's supposed to be the center of power in hong kong they will no doubt be repercussions but they're vowing to continue
8:06 am
a fight that they say has become about much more than a proposed law it's about the future of the city wayne hay al jazeera hong kong well let's talk to katrina you now who's in the chinese capital beijing katrina's all who have officials been saying about events in hong kong and is the chinese government like has said any action at all. well so far we haven't heard any official response from the foreign ministry waiting for that at this afternoon's press conference they're likely to give some sort of official response but we are starting to see more state media reports come come out and be broadcast about the events last night and specifically we had one report on c.c.t.v. which is the state broadcaster here say that yesterday was and undisguised challenge to the one country 2 systems policies are basically the turning the blame around and saying look it's the people in hong kong who want living up to their promise of of protecting hong kong's autonomy now their report that they subsequently showed
8:07 am
on t.v. had very different pictures to what we've been showing for the past few hours on al-jazeera rather than focusing on the graffiti the vandalism the young people these pictures instead focused on carry lamb in her condemnation of this of this protest or condemnation of the violence and also they focused on a representative from hong kong police who actually said that these protesters many of them are in fact probably guilty of crimes and that they will be punished for these crimes he also emphasizes how many palm kong police have been put in hospital about a dozen or so because of the protests last night so very much what they're trying to do is is dismiss the acts of these protesters of as a violent mobs as a as young people who are really taking out their rage and not really following any sort of clear direction and really just causing reading havoc and causing damage so that's the image they're very much want to portray and we saw more of that on some
8:08 am
chinese something glitched language chinese state media newspapers which i have with me now around the world possibly in hong kong for sure we would have seen no doubt pictures of the protest pictures of ledge her being broken into on the front page but not here in china here in china we've got the global time something else we'll have to china daily if i start with china daily their front page is indeed. of some locals participating in a celebration parade with some. offices in here and also we've got a picture here of a celebration of all these the local hong kong residents gathering to make an aerial symbol that says i love hong kong and basically celebrating the anniversary of the return of hong kong to mainland china that's definitely the image here that the chinese government looking to portray and certainly this afternoon when we do hear an official response we expect that line will be very much the same that this
8:09 am
was nothing but the work of of radicals and really mainstream hong kong mainstream hong kong are still on our side at least that's what beijing would like to have the world believe or i took a train or you there in beijing katrina thanks for that let's cross over now to hong kong and speak to serve a plug service of the clean up operation is now well underway just tell us what's been happening there now. with the clean up operation began before daylight and i must say it's been extraordinarily efficient a behind me in the whole way along this side of the lips of council building there were piles and piles of rubbish we do have some barricades here this is where the protesters put those if the entrances the car insurance or the vehicle insurance i should say to hong kong's parliament are they still dismantling knows but the whole way up here and around the block it's a very large block those powers have been picked up and removed by chalk's now what was in the is that though barricades all the various devices that were used by these protesters to storm their way in to ledge co and that includes smashing
8:10 am
through this very thick glass and behind that glass there was massive big metal padding which is of the security measures they managed to get through that as well so at this stage to kill up is going well we've had the hong kong secretary general has said that he thinks that alleged lots of council meetings why not be able to happen for a couple of wait until this damage is restored i should also say that this is. it's also been cordoned off now we were able to access inside where the damage is done earlier today but the police have now cordoned that off simply because they've made it a crime zine to carry lamis trist she wants to pursue the prosecution of those people who are involved and sara how has the media in hong kong been framing last night's events. well of course it's on the front pages of all the newspapers and it's quite straightforward the pictures are showing that the various protests as you might say why right into the council chambers the disks the
8:11 am
walls everything's been good feted graffiti i should say one area they even accessed the drinks at one of the the offices of one of the uprising beijing nor makers but they actually left money for those drinks so it's it was quite an unusual extraordinary turn of events i should say here now and what's going to happen today which is choose day to carry lamb has this morning held executive council meeting which is hong kong's cabinet meeting that's been held at government house that's where she lives on but as i mentioned before because of the damage and because of what we can see here and and the problems associated with the the damage of the riots last with the protests last night there will be no let's have council meetings for at least a couple of weights all right sara clark in hong kong sara thank you were drawn to a woman leading figure in hong kong's pro-democracy movement called the public not to blame the protesters who stormed the council building on monday evening. at the same time if the lawmaker of hong kong.

the democratic presidential race says trump's iran policy has alienated us from our allies and taken us to the brink of another war in the middle east everything this president does is backwards this could end in a number of different ways with an agreement possibly between the u.s. and iran with a military conflict like the one that only days ago president trump said he was within 10 minutes of ordering or we could have the kind of prolonged standoff that we have right now time for a short break here now to 0 when we come back we meet the stolid. it's as flocking to a small chilean town to watch a red sun or eclipse. and iraq moves to limit the influence of the country's powerful iran but paramilitary groups more and that stay with us.
