HONG KONG – This country’s leader Carrie Lam said she will not scrap a controversial plan to allow extradition to mainland China, despite mass protests.
Hundreds of thousands of people on Sunday rallied against the bill.
Organizers estimated one million people took part in Sunday’s march, although police put the figure at 240,000 at its peak.
If the organizers’ estimate was correct, it would be the largest demonstration in Hong Kong since the territory was handed over to China by the British in 1997.
After Sunday’s protests tapered off, violence broke out between protesters and police.
At least three officers and a journalist were injured. (BBC)
