Hong Kong extradition: China defends proposed law

China‘s leaders continue to voice support for Hong Kong‘s leader Carrie Lam, who is resisting demands to shelve the controversial extradition bill that has recently sparked a wave of mass protests.

Lam refused to stand down following the territory’s biggest protest since Hong Kong was returned to China in 1997.

Al Jazeera’s Adrian Brown reports from Beijing, where legal experts are defending the proposed law.
