Hong Kong Misses Deadline To Scrap Extradition Bill

According to reuters, Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam appeared to ignore a Thursday deadline set by some protesters to withdraw an extradition bill that she promoted then postponed.

This sets the stage for a new wave of demonstrations in the Chinese-ruled city.

Lam suspended the bill, which would allow criminal suspects in the former British colony to be extradited to mainland China for trial, but some student groups called on her to axe it altogether, setting the 5 p.m.

Deadline.
