After nearly four months of violence, the vast number of Hong Kong residents have been hurt, with the retailing, catering and tourism industries that employ about 600,000 people being the hardest hit.

The publication also complained about the presence in the Apple Music store of a song advocating for Hong Kong's independence from China.

China has warned foreign governments to stay out of the protests which they deem as an "internal affair" and have accused some, including Britain and the United States, of fanning anti-China sentiment.

She has said the mask ban will make identification of rioters easier for police and that other measures are possible if violence continues.
