Protest and arrests over Tiananmen vigil in Hong Kong
The Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong has criticized the behavior of Western diplomats in Hong Kong. In a letter released on Sunday, the commissioner's office expressed its "strong disapproval and firm opposition". "In disregard of China’s solemn position and advance warning, your office repeated the wrong deeds of last year and insisted on posting misleading words about the June 4 incident on the social media accounts of your office on June 4." On Saturday, the consulates of the United States, Finland and the European Union had placed lit candles in the windows of their Hong Kong offices to commemorate the June 4 Tiananmen massacre in Beijing 33 years ago. Images of it were then uploaded to their social media pages.
