Organisers said "almost two million" people turned out for Sunday's mammoth protest in Hong Kong opposed to a deeply unpopular extradition law, an estimate that is nearly double last weekend's already record-breaking crowds.

"Today's march we had almost 2 million people," Jimmy Sham, from the Civil Human Rights Front, told reporters.
