(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam acknowledged on Friday (July 14) there were concerns over certain incidents in the city and it was her duty to accurately reflect them to the central government in Beijing. "Hong Kong people are always very compassionate and so I share that compassion of many Hong Kong people by sending my condolence to the wife and the family of Mr. Liu," said Lam.

Lam was speaking in her first interview with the international media since she was sworn in as the city's new leader by Chinese President Xi Jinping on July 1.
