Thousands demonstrate in Taiwan against China

Thousands of pro-independence demonstrators gathered in Taiwan's capital on Saturday to express their disapproval of China's stance toward their island.

China cut off contact with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen's government shortly after her inauguration in 2016 and has been ratcheting up diplomatic, economic and military pressure on Taiwan in a bid to compel Tsai to agree to Beijing's insistence that the self-governing island is a part of China.

Nizamdeen's family, which maintains that the handwriting in the notebook isn't his, said the charges were dropped on Friday. Nizamdeen, 25, was kept in solitary confinement for weeks before he was released on bail last month.
