A government spokesperson of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) condemned the violence following a knife attack on lawmaker Junius Ho Kwan-yiu Wednesday morning.
Ho was stabbed during an election campaign event by a man who pretended to present him a bouquet in Tuen Mun. Ho was sent to the hospital for the wound which he claimed is not life-threatening in a statement. The attacker was arrested and an investigation is underway.
The spokesperson said Hong Kong is zero tolerant to violence and urged citizens to maintain calm and rational when expressing opinions.
