Hong Kong"s leader Carrie Lam abandons speech after protests

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has been forced to suspend her annual address after being heckled in parliament.
Opposition lawmakers disrupted the Legislative Council session by shouting and projecting slogans behind her.
After a first interruption, the session resumed only to be interrupted again. It was then suspended - and Ms Lam delivered the address by video instead.
It means the extradition bill - the trigger for months of protests - could not be withdrawn formally.
