force their way into the government building it came after a much larger peaceful anti-government march earlier in the day organizers said more than half a 1000000 people came out on the 22nd anniversary of the handover of hong kong from great britain to china they want hong kong's chief executive to resign and for a controversial extradition bill to be withdrawn. they see the bill which would allow criminal suspects to be sent to mainland china for trial as another sign of beijing's increasing control over hong kong as the police investigation continues here the debate is only really just beginning about the decision by protesters to burst into this building causing so much damage along the way and whether it will turn public opinion against the anti-government movements even some supporters of the protesters believe it was a mistake but they say it has to be viewed in a broader context of what they're trying to achieve why this down people. are so

persuade to tehran to continue to comply with the deal earlier in the day we heard from the french president amount of virus statement that was released by the elise a in which mark was calling on iran to reverse the steps it's taken to exceed its uranium limits it's also urging tehran to comply with the deal saying that president bankroll really focus on the next few days on doing everything he can to make sure that this deal survived is something we also heard from the british foreign minister there is a clear desire on behalf of the europeans to continue to fight for this deal as they have done so ever since the united states pulled out and we impose sanctions last year. has more from tehran. iran's speaker of parliament johnny speaking during a ceremony to mark the 988 u.s. shoot down of an iranian passenger airliner flight 605 the remarks that he made really reflected the frustration of the iranian leadership now 290 people died in
