In Hong Kong, protesters and police have been clashing in the second mass demonstration in recent days against the proposed bill to allow extradition of Hong Kong residents to mainland China. Riot police deployed tear gas, rubber bullets and pepper spray against demonstrators in front of government buildings. Earlier in the day, lawmakers announced they would postpone today’s debate on the contested legislation. Critics of the bill say it would infringe on Hong Kong’s independence and the legal and human rights of Hong Kong residents.
