Following today's protests in Hong Kong, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

"Whilst there is no excuse for violence, the use of live ammunition is disproportionate, and only risks inflaming the situation."

"This incident underlines the need for a constructive dialogue to address the legitimate concerns of the people of Hong Kong. We need to see restraint and a de-escalation from both protestors and the Hong Kong authorities."
