Protests demanding the prime minister step down and a bill allowing extradition of suspects to China for trial continue for the 10th week in Hong Kong.

Demonstrators set up barricades in the New Territories area and tried to drive the police away, while riot police tried to enter a shopping center to disperse them.

This comes in conjunction with a protest at the city's international airport for a second day, where a number of activists and protesters occupied the arrival hall at the airport. Protest organizers are aiming to get their demands to visitors from around the world.

Hong Kong Prime Minister Kari Lam has called the protests a tsunami that is ravaging the economy and stressed that the government should not make concessions to protesters.

Saturday's demonstrations are part of a series of demonstrations planned every weekend throughout the city, and authorities have refused to grant permission for most of the protests.

Protests began in Hong Kong on June 9 against a controversial bill allowing extradition of suspected suspects to China.

Although the local government suspended the bill to contain the anger of the street, protesters are demanding that it be completely abolished.

But the prime minister has not responded to any of the protesters' demands, including her demand to step down and set up an independent commission to investigate police brutality. Protesters say they will continue until all their demands are met.
