HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Tuesday authorities’ actions against pro-democracy tabloid Apple (NASDAQ:) Daily under the city’s sweeping national security law were not targeting press freedom.

Lam was speaking at her weekly press conference a day after Mark Simon, an adviser to the jailed Apple Daily owner and Beijing critic Jimmy Lai, told Reuters the media outlet would be forced to shut in “a matter of days”.
