Close-up: Taiwan's chair barricade

Students broke into the legislature late on Tuesday and have since defied police efforts to evict them, using barricades made of furniture.

Students and activists have occupied Taiwan's parliament since early last week.

They want more scrutiny over all future dealings with China, including any trade agreements.

China formally regards Taiwan as a part of its territory, despite the island governing itself for six decades.

Taiwan Correspondent Cindy Sui reports from inside the parliament building.
