Sino-British body's last gasp

The Sino-British body overseeing Hong Kong's reversion to China will meet once more before the handover. The Joint Liaison Group, which worked out many of the details leading up to the colony's return to China at midnight of 30 June, will meet on Thursday and Friday of next week in Hong Kong, the government said.
