Hong Kong leader Lam 'saddened' by protesters' injuries

HONG KONG, Nov 5 (Reuters) - Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday she was saddened by some people being wounded in anti-government protests at the weekend amid five months of sometimes violent unrest in the Chinese-ruled city.

Lam was speaking during a visit to Shanghai where Chinese President Xi Xinping reiterated support for Hong Kong's chief executive. She said Xi had expressed his care and concern about Hong Kong. (Reporting by Twinnie Siu, Editing by Nick Macfie)
