Hong Kong head Carrie Lam has accused the US of 'double standards' amid protests, Yahoo reported.

"We have seen most clearly in recent weeks the double standards that are around," Lam told reporters.

"You know there are riots in the United States and we see how local governments reacted. And then in Hong Kong, when we had similar riots, we saw what position they adopted then."

The protests in the US came following a video showing African American Floyd's arrest. Floyd was suspected of shopping with fake money at a store.

He was handcuffed and thrown to the ground, after which a police officer pressed him on the asphalt with his knee. Floyd screamed that he couldn’t breathe, but the police officers didn’t pay attention to him. The African American was hospitalized, but doctors failed to save his life.
