Chief Executive has not answered my questions over UGL saga, says academic  Listenfacebook
The Chief Executive, CY Leung, says he's largely answered the questions raised by a University of Hong Kong legal scholar, Eric Cheung, on his UGL deal. Cheung's questions include whether Leung declared the agreement to the Executive Council, and if he provided services to the firm while in office. Leung argued that the academic "clearly didn't try to understand" the explanations he gave in late 2014, soon after the deal came to light. But Cheung tells Jim Gould that Leung has not answered his questions at all.

A suicide bomber has killed at least 22 people, some of them children, at a pop concert in the British city of Manchester. About 60 others were wounded - some with life-threatening injuries.

RTHK's London correspondent, Peter Anderson, says the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, chaired a meeting of the government's top security committee. He tells Annemarie Evans that she later spoke about the terrible and traumatic scenes that followed the attack.
