HONG KONG (Reuters) - More than 100 people blocked a Hong Kong government building on Monday in protest against proposed legislation allowing extraditions to mainland China that they want scrapped.

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam, saying she had heard the protesters "loud and clear", this month postponed the bill that would allow criminal suspects to be sent to the mainland for trial in courts controlled by the Communist Party.
