Hong Kong extradition: Debate over bill delayed amid protests

Thousands of protesters and police in Hong Kong are engaged in a standoff as anger grows over a bill which would allow extradition to mainland China. Early on Wednesday protesters, some wearing face masks and helmets, blocked key roads around government buildings. Police in riot gear responded by using pepper spray on protesters to disperse them and said they were prepared to use force.

The Legislative Council has now delayed the second reading of the bill.
