Hong Kong

The horribly unpopular extradition bill that kicked off the protests in Hong Kong has been formally withdrawn.

The bill was submitted by Carrie Lam back in February. The bill had been introduced to allow a man wanted for murder in Taiwan to be extradited.

Problems arose when widespread fear that residents could be at risk of getting sent to mainland China to face Communist party controlled courts. This prompted protests that has pit the police against citizens.
