A session of Hong Kong's Legislative Council was adjourned after Chief Executive Carrie Lam was heckled by opposition lawmakers on Thursday. Several of them were dragged from the chamber as they voiced the demands of anti-government protesters.

Some opposition members brought white flowers to the session and held a minute silence for the people who were killed during the demonstrations in Hong Kong.

It was followed by chaotic scenes as lawmakers interrupted Lam who was about to make a speech and security personnel intervened to take them out of the chamber.

On Wednesday, Lam was forced to suspend her annual policy address after heckling in the legislature. She then delivered the speech by video.
