Hundreds of thousands of protesters had taken to the streets of Hong Kong to protest against the Extradition Bill, that would allow suspects accused of crimes such as murder and rape to be extradited to mainland China to face trial. After three months of mass protest, the Hong Kong government promised this month to withdraw the bill.
