operating there a major international airport that's because pilots are going on strike but more importantly traffic controllers by the childless are not turning up to what whether they are saying this sick or whether they're saying they can't get either way this is a city where there's very little it feels anyway economic activity going on at the moment and they sold follows yet another night of protest the violence with tear gas this time. different areas of hong kong i think how living on the northern side of hong kong where i was in the area of course. sunday night in one of the most upscale districts of one of the most sophisticated cities on. but in hong kong this is becoming the norm. protest his tactics have changed. rather than targets one building and wait for the
12:08 pm
police to clear them. move along their aim is maximum destruction across the city be like water they tell each other everyone. on sunday they marched 1st to china's liaison office in hong kong on route some hid behind umbrella's as they use spawn is to break apart fences gathering the metal foot barricades. finding pleece protecting their 1st targets they moved swiftly on. taking metro trains to the shopping district of kools wife a. then they built barricades used pliers to cut the wires of traffic lights and stopped traffic people over there disabling traffic lights that taking apart barry is this. particular grows with. the roles actually we try
12:09 pm
peaceful means and a bad person and he responds and so we try to increase may be increased pressure by our broken heroes and so the more people interrupt. and we try to do it just it was just brown message but you faithful that's the way they say in this room is that china might send in its on me. actually i am not afraid of honor but believe that's not going to happen the protest does have support even among those disrupted but in the end disruption here near the entrance to a cross harbor tunnel didn't last long. and he stayed one step ahead of the police will not as well as come to a head gets a good take us on the streets of hong kong there's a general strike planned for hong kong on monday and promises the protests that day will be the most widespread yet. we had the sort of chief executive hong kong
12:10 pm
speaking in our coverage and it really does pose the question about how the authorities are going to deal with this situation because at the moment it just to be just seems to be the only way they can deal with it is with tear gas and riot police. so he feels that way it was very instant press conference of kerry lamb in many ways for what he didn't say as much as what she did say now i'll take out a few bits for you she said that hong kong is on the verge of a very dangerous situation i think that choice of words is interesting because a lot of people fail here we're already in a dangerous situation so what is a more dangerous situation that we're on the verge of it begs that question she rejected calls for her resignation saying that at this time resignation of myself will not provide a better solution that's one of the key aims of the protesters is to force carried out the chief executive to resign she gave no ground then nor on any of their other demands has to be said she is standing very model of that she said holding the rule
12:11 pm
of law is the way out of this situation and she said as well that what is happening at the moment is putting at risk the one country 2 systems situation the hong kong enjoys now the protesters want to put that at risk of course because they want is 2 countries 2 systems this is about democracy and self rule but china hong kong separate from china but what carrier lamb is warning that is rather than get 2 countries 2 systems you might get one country china and one system and that was a very veiled threats at the press conference you also talked about how the police and other security agencies would deal with a situation we've only seen the place what those other security agencies mean is she suggesting for example that the people's liberation army of china could get involved here that would certainly have been the rumors flying around online and elsewhere kerry that was off directly about that she said no more than that she is following the rumors herself on. line which doesn't necessarily suggest he's
12:12 pm
rejecting that idea entirely nor does it mean that she's endorsing it there will now be a press conference by the place every day going forward that reflects the growing we can see of these protests and the fact really but not a day passes and increasingly it was like not an hour passes in hong kong when there isn't some part of this city in affective lockdown and chaos as protesters take over the streets to day basis will hit hong kong's economy pretty hard indeed we will continue to monitor what goes on in hong kong with you andrew through the day andrew thomas force in hong kong. now there's another flash point in asia that we're keeping a very close eye on and that's india where its prime minister is holding a cabinet meeting this hour the situation in indian administered kashmir is likely to be discussed the government has imposed an indefinite security lockdown in parts of the region prominent local politicians have been put under house arrest so when
12:13 pm

12:14 pm
kashmir were packed into trains to wrists and pilgrims were ordered to leave the indian government says their intelligence reports about possible attacks on the annual pilgrimage but some think they could be something larger in the works in terms of the very dramatic move such as ordering a mandatory evacuations of of tourists and closing schools down putting local leaders under house arrest to me that suggests that something is much greater as a play than a mere terrorist threat there have been terror threats and near many times before and for and the indian authorities do not act like this so i really think that there's something broader at play it seems like india is trying to head off possible on rest which suggests that india could be planning to make some sort of major moves such as revoking kashmir is autonomous status something that's unacceptable for many. countries article 35 a in article

well christopher is the director of strategic and international relations asia calling it consultancy specializing in india and south asia and he says a resolution that appeals to all sides will be difficult to reach. from the kashmiri point of view it's there in my article $37370.00 which gives them special status essentially autonomy although that's been severely guy unit if they if they don't fiddle with that and they say you can have this special status that will appeal to the people in the kashmir valley but it wide appeal to people in india nor sello people in general in kashmir from the general in the dock region that montgomery and kashmir to be a fully integrated would be india it's a real conundrum there are 2 different sides and there's not one commonality between the 2 positions but the challenge for india is there in the superior position i have the way with only canonically and militarily in paramilitary to impose their will and there's
