Activists dressed in black march to govt offices in Hong Kong

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Hundreds of thousands of black-clad protesters in Hong Kong demanded on Sunday (June 16) that the city's leader step down over her handling of a bill that would have allowed extradition to China and which sparked one of the most violent protests in decades.

The protesters formed a sea of black along roads, walkways and train stations across Hong Kong's financial centre to vent their frustration and anger at Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam.

Beijing-backed Lam on Saturday (June 15) indefinitely delayed the extradition bill but she stopped short of apologizing.

The about-face was one of the most significant political turnarounds by the Hong Kong government since Britain returned the territory to China in 1997, and it threw into question Lam's ability to continue to lead the city.

The protests have plunged Hong Kong into political crisis, just as months of pro-democracy "Occupy" demonstrations did in 2014, heaping pressure on Lam's administration and her official backers in Beijing.
