Hong Kong Protesters Smash Windows Of Government Building

Protesters tried to break into Hong Kongโ€™s legislature building on the 22nd anniversary of the handover to China.

They used a metal trolley and poles to smash windows amid anger over the extraditions bill, which would allow people to stand trial in China.

They are demanding the bill be scrapped and Hong Kong's Beijing-backed leader Carrie Lam step-down immediately.

The former British colony was returned to China in 1997 under a "one country, two systems" formula.
