Hong Kong's Beijing-appointed leader has announced that a controversial extradition bill is "dead".

Carrie Lam admitted that her government's work on the proposed law had been a total failure.

The proposed law would have allowed the extradition of criminal suspects to mainland China.

Opponents of the bill feared that it would allow the Chinese leadership to target its critics in Hong Kong, which led to unprecedented protests.

Earlier this month, hundreds of people broke away from peaceful demonstrations and stormed the city's legislature building.
