A memorial service has been held in Hong Kong for a protester who committed suicide.

"So how can the government tell us that we should preserve our rule of law, when [Lam] herself does not use the principle of the rule of law", they said. "She is still running away from the problem", Lo said.

Details about future protest actions would be announced at a later time, Leung said.

"There are still lingering doubts about the government's sincerities or worries over whether the government will restart the [extradition bill] process in the legislative council. The bill is dead".

Winston Peters calls for peaceful resolution to US-Iran tensions
The US military is aiming to form a naval coalition of allies that would guarantee freedom of movement in strategic waters around the Arabian Peninsula.

But not everyone is convinced, with activists asserting that Lam did not go far enough to address public demands, and that the bill is still technically in motion within Hong Kong's legislative procedure.

The legislation would allow criminal suspects to be extradited to mainland China.

In the most recent protest on Sunday, tens of thousands of people, chanting "Free Hong Kong" and some carrying British colonial-era flags, marched towards a high-speed railway station that connects Hong Kong to the Chinese mainland.

Since early June, there has been an huge show of public opposition against a proposed extradition bill that would allow anyone in Hong Kong, including foreigners, to be sent to Mainland China to face trial under Chinese law. A few hundred demonstrators shattered thick glass panels to enter the building and wreaked havoc for three hours, spray-painting slogans on the chamber walls, overturning furniture and damaging electronic voting and fire prevention systems.
