Nearly two million people have taken part in a mass protest in Hong Kong against a controversial extradition bill, organisers say.

If confirmed, it would be the largest protest in Hong Kong's history. Police said turnout was 338,000 at its peak.

The masses turned out despite the suspension of the bill - which would allow extradition from Hong Kong to mainland China - on Saturday.

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

Many protesters, who fear increased Chinese influence over Hong Kong, are calling on her to resign over the unrest.

They are also demanding that the bill be scrapped, not just suspended.

ENDS

I spent much of the weekend with people from Hong Kong.

None of them believed the Chinese dictatorship would allow the bill to be scrapped.

The consensus was "They'll just find another way".

Sadly, Marise Payne doesn't share their view.

Payne's statement "welcoming" the move doesn't go anywhere near far enough.

China should be condemned.

Two million Hong Kong residents in the street versus Marise!

My money's on Hong Kong.
