Biden denounces ‘irresponsible’ Trump fight to reverse election

  US President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday accused Donald Trump of brazenly damaging democracy, as the incumbent's campaign to reverse his election loss through fraud claims was dealt another blow with a recount in Georgia.

Trump has refused to accept his loss on 3 November, despite his opponent getting over six million more votes. Biden won the state-by-state Electoral College votes that ultimately decide who takes the White House by 306 to 232, flipping five states that went to Trump four years ago.

Hong Kong Lawmakers Fight Over Bill To Criminalise Abuse Of China’s Anthem

Hong Kong has its own national football team, but not its own anthem - so the Chinese one is played before games. In recent years, the anthem has been booed more frequently before matches. In 2017, China's parliament, the National People's Congress, extended a law on disrespecting the anthem to Hong Kong - but it has not yet been adopted there. China’s Hong Kong affairs office warned this month that the city would never be calm unless “black-clad violent protesters” were all removed, describing them as a “political virus” that seeks independence from Beijing.
