2046 - 2103 | Yoho Mall, Yuen Long
Today marks the seventh mensiversary of the July 21 Attacks at Yuen Long. Civilians have gathered in Yoho Mall, Yuen Long this evening to commemorate the event, as well to urge the government to bring justice to the attackers.

While civilians were protesting inside the mall, riot police could be seen on standby outside the mall. Yuen Long district councilor from Kingswood North Ng Kin Wai had asked the police commander on-site whether the police would enter the mall, which the commander responded that they may, as they claimed illegal activities were being conducted inside.

Another Yuen Long district councilor from Shui Pin Samuel Lai Kwok-wing stated that he saw riot police using cardboard to hold the main doors of the mall, which he suspected were to convenience the riot police by easing their entrance into the mall.

Other district councilors are currently negotiating with the police.
