Demonstrators marched through Hong Kong on Sunday to protest against the recently suspended extradition bill amendment and demand that it be struck down indefinitely.

Protesters were seen marching while holding banners and signs bearing slogans such as 'no China extradition.

The march comes after Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced the suspension of the extradition bill in the wake of clashes between demonstrators and police.

In February, the Hong Kong government proposed amending its extradition laws so that the city can accept extradition requests from countries with which it has no prior agreement, such as mainland China.
