HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong’s justice secretary, Teresa Cheng, said she will return to her office on Wednesday, after being on sick leave for more than two weeks following an attack in London.

Cheng spoke to reporters at the airport upon arrival in Hong Kong on Tuesday.

The Hong Kong government has previously said Cheng was targeted by a “violent mob” when she was in London to promote Hong Kong as a dispute resolution and deal-making hub.
