Protests Over Controversial Bill Postpone Debate

CNN reports Hong Kong lawmakers have postponed a debate over a controversial bill that would allow fugitives to be extradited to China after protesters blocked roads and restricted access to government buildings.

The city&apos;s legislative council was due to hold the second reading of the bill on Wednesday morning local time.

The bill has been met with widespread opposition, including from the city&apos;s traditionally conservative business community, and prompted more than 1 million of the city&apos;s 7.4 million population to take to the streets in protest on Sunday, according to organizers.
