Tighter security at Legco meeting
(06-10 18:13)

Legco's President, Tsang Yok-sing, says a series of temporary security measures will be implemented on Friday.
This is to ensure that a finance committee meeting proceeds smoothly while again discussing the government's funding request for a preliminary site investigation to develop two new towns in the north-eastern New Territories.
This follows the storming of the Council building by 100 protesters opposed to the work last week.
Mr would be reduced to ensure the safety of everyone in the building. --RTHK
