Pro-democracy lawmakers are dragged out of Hong Kong's legislature by security guards after heckling the city's pro-Beijing leader for a second day running, Thursday, October 17.
Chief executive Carrie Lam has faced an outpouring of anger from her opponents since the legislature opened its doors for a new session on Wednesday, three months after the building was trashed by masked protesters.
Activists have said they will only end their huge rallies if core demands are met, including an independent inquiry into the police, an amnesty for the more than 2,500 people arrested and fully free elections.
Both Lam and Beijing have repeatedly dismissed those demands and say Hong Kong's freedoms are being protected. (AFP)
