Mass protest held in Taiwan against China trade deal

At least 100,000 people took to the streets of Taiwan's capital Taipei on Sunday, to protest against a controversial trade agreement with China.

They carried signs reading "defend democracy, withdraw the trade deal".

President Ma Ying-jeou insists the deal will bring economic benefits, but campaigners says it will make Taiwan too economically dependent on China.
