Taiwan students occupy parliament over China trade pact

Hundreds of students in Taiwan have occupied parliament in protest at a trade deal with China.

They called for an apology from the president and asked for the initial review of the pact to be scrapped, saying they are concerned about China’s having too much influence on the economy and a lack of opportunities for local people.

The trade agreement was signed by both sides last June but delays caused by the opposition have meant it has so far not been ratified.
