Tens Of Thousands Protest Extradition Bill In Hong Kong

Reuters reports Tens of thousands of demonstrators in Hong Kong surrounded the cityโ€™s legislature on Wednesday, forcing it to postpone a second round of debate on an extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial.

The protesters, most of them young people dressed in black, erected barricades as they prepared to hunker down for an extended occupation of the area, in scenes reminiscent of pro-democracy โ€œOccupyโ€ protests that rocked the city in 2014.
