Hong Kong scraps law that sparked protests – BBC News

Hong Kong’s legislature has formally withdrawn a controversial extradition bill that has sparked months of unrest.

The bill – which would have allowed for criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland China – prompted outrage when it was introduced in April.

Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets and the bill was eventually suspended.

But protesters have continued regular demonstrations, which spiralled into a wider pro-democracy movement.
