Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam was forced to halt her annual policy address on Wednesday after some lawmakers disrupted the session, shouting and jeering "five demands, not one less" as Lam started her speech.

Lam was due to announce a raft of property initiatives in a bid to restore confidence in her administration after more than four months of anti-government protests.
