Hong Kong withdraws extradition bill that sparked protests
HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Sept. 4 withdrew an extradition bill that sparked months of demonstrations, bowing to one of the protesters' demands in the hope of ending increasingly violent unrest.
Activists, however, rejected the move as "too little, too late," and vowed not to yield until the government accepts other demands including an independent investigation into alleged police brutality against protesters, the unconditional release of those detained and democracy.
The bill would have allowed Hong Kong residents to be sent to mainland China for trials. It has prompted massive protests since June that have disrupted transportation around the city and at its international airport.
In a recorded televised message, Lam said the government would not accept the other demands, and instead named two new members to a police watchdog agency investigating police misconduct.
Many in Hong Kong see the extradition bill as an example of the city's eroding autonomy since China took control of it from Britain in 1997.
