Protests on the streets of Hong Kong

This week has seen the biggest protests in Hong Kong since Britain handed the former colony back to China in 1997 over a proposed extradition law.

This week has seen the biggest protests on the streets of Hong Kong since Britain handed the former colony back to China in 1997. Demonstrators are angry at a proposed new law which would allow extradition to mainland China for trial. As Danny Vincent reports, it's considered by many in Hong Kong to be the latest example of the erosion of freedoms that Hong Kong was guaranteed during the handover. As Pride events take place all over the world this month to recognise LGBT communities and to highlight ongoing campaigns for equal rights, Yolande Knell reports on Pride in Israel. There are demonstrations in the heart of Europe too. Rob Cameron reports from the streets of the Czech capital, Prague, where there have been protests against the prime minister. And what should happen to the Chagos Islands and its former citizens now Britain has been told by the UN to hand the territory back to Mauritius? Rosie Blunt has been talking to members of the Chagossian community living in the UK. And Monica Whitlock meets a family in eastern Kazakhstan preparing for a funeral feast.
