LONDON, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Britain said on Thursday that China had once again broken the Sino-British Joint Declaration by imposing new rules to disqualify elected legislators in Hong Kong.

"Beijing's imposition of new rules to disqualify elected legislators in Hong Kong constitutes a clear breach of the legally binding Sino-British Joint Declaration," Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said.
