Protests In Hong Kong Over China Extradition Laws

Hong Kong riot police using barons, tear gas and pepper spray clash with protestors after million-strong demo over proposed new extradition bill with China

Metal barriers were left twisted and torn in the clashes.  The Legislative Council is where debates will start on Wednesday to pass a new government bill that will allow suspects wanted in mainland China to be sent across the border for trial.
