“Nearly two million” turn out for Hong Kong protest say organizers


    Organizers claim that nearly two million people have taken part in a Hong Kong protest against a controversial extradition bill.

    If confirmed, it would be the largest protest in Hong Kong’s history but police say turnout was 338,000 at its peak.

    The masses turned out despite the suspension of the bill.

    It seeks to allow extradition from Hong Kong to mainland China.

    Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam on Sunday apologised for proposing the bill.
