Hundreds of thousands of people have marched in Hong Kong against a law critics fear could let China target political opponents in the territory.

The controversial extradition bill would allow suspected criminals to be sent to mainland China for trial.

Organisers say there were one million people which would make it the biggest march in more than 20 years.

Police say there were 240,000 at its peak.

After it ended clashes erupted between hundreds of demonstrators and police.

Protesters, some wearing surgical masks, tried to break into the Legislative Council complex throwing crowd control barriers around and police in riot gear used batons and pepper spray.

Some of the protesters and policemen were later seen with faces covered in blood.
