World News: Hong Kong moves to ban face masks as protests continue

Embattled Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam invoked the use of emergency powers on Friday, allowing the government to ban face masks at protests, in an attempt to further clamp down on pro-democracy rallies that have rocked the city since June.
Lam said that the ban will take effect on Saturday, October 5. Reports said that the ban will be effective as early as midnight.
