Opposition lawmakers argued with security guards and accused them of pushing people in Hong Kong's Legislative Council on Thursday, after they were removed from the council chambers after heckling Chief Executive Carrie Lam and forcing an adjournment.

Footage shows lawmakers accusing security guards of blocking their way and of pushing Legislative Councillor Tanya Chen.
