Hong Kong ignores protest 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.

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.

They are also demanding that the government drop all charges against those arrested during last week’s protests.
