Hong Kong Protesters Demand Apology from U.S. Over Snowden Allegations


About ten protesters affiliated with a pro-Beijing political party marched to Hong Kong's U.S. consulate general on Saturday (June 15) to demand an apology from Washington after former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who leaked details of top secret U.S. surveillance programmes, alleged the U.S. had hacked into Hong Kong's networks. The 29-year-old fled to Hong Kong in the hope that the city's legal system would help protect him from U.S. prosecution.
