HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday that her administration would introduce a fourth round of relief measures in the near term to boost the city’s battered economy after six months of unrest.

Lam was speaking after a mass demonstration over the weekend in the Asian financial hub that saw police fire tear gas to disperse thousands of anti-government protesters, ending a rare lull in violence.

Demonstrations are planned in districts across the city on Tuesday during the lunch break, with further protests planned in the evening.
