US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he hoped no one would be killed in Hong Kong amid new protests capping 10 weeks of unrest in the semi-autonomous southern Chinese financial hub.

The crisis, which has seen millions of anti-government activists take to Hong Kong’s streets, was a “very tricky situation,” the president told reporters in New Jersey.

“I hope it works out peacefully, nobody gets hurt, nobody gets killed,” he said. — AFP
