Hong Kong leader says China's proposed security laws will not affect city's rights and freedoms

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday that Beijing's proposed national security laws would not affect the city's rights and freedoms and called on its citizens to wait to see the details of the legislation as more protests are expected this week.

China unveiled plans last week for national security legislation for Hong Kong that aims to tackle "secession, subversion and terrorist activities". It could see Chinese intelligence agencies set up bases in the city.

Thousands headed onto the streets of Hong Kong on Sunday in a mass protest against the planned new security laws. Police fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd and arrested almost 200 people.
