Hong Kong protests: Demonstrators defy ban on march

Police had banned the demonstration on security grounds and arrested several key activists and legislators in a dragnet on pro-democracy figures on Friday.

The march came as police ramped up a crackdown on the months-long protest movement, which was triggered in June by a proposed bill that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China.

Opposition to the extradition bill — now suspended but not permanently withdrawn — has brought much of Hong Kong to the streets, with millions marching peacefully but also groups of radical protesters clashing with police.
