World Tense relations: Great Britain stops extradition agreement with Hong Kong
The new Hong Kong: Disappearing books, illegal words and arrests over blank white paper
Less than two weeks under a new national security law enacted by Beijing, Hong Kong residents already feel a curtain of control falling over the city's realms of speech and thought.The police arrived in full riot gear, waving a flag that read: “You are in breach of the law.” They arrested eight people, searched others and dispersed the rest.
In response to the controversial Chinese security law in Hong Kong, Great Britain has suspended the extradition agreement with the special administrative zone "immediately and indefinitely". London will also extend its arms embargo on "potentially lethal weapons" to the financial metropolis, Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said on Monday to Parliament.
Relations between London and Beijing are tense. The British government had previously criticized the so-called security law as a "clear violation" of Hong Kong's autonomy. (afp)
