Protesters are again rallying in Hong Kong, this time to demand the city's pro-Beijing leader Carrie Lam step down after she bowed to pressure from huge street rallies and indefinitely delayed work on a controversial extradition bill that would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial. But that's not enough for the protesters, who want her to withdraw the legislation completely. Not only do they want Lam to resign, they're also demanding she apologize for the police's use of potentially lethal force during clashes with protesters this week. Pro-democracy activists are planning a general strike on Monday, as fears grow over Beijing's tightening grip on the autonomous region.
