Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Monday said escalating violence will not make the government "yield to pressure to satisfy the so-called political demands".

City-wide chaos started from morning rush hour when police fired live rounds and wounded a protester in close range was followed by another man dousing petrol on another and setting him on fire.
