People in Chinese Taipei have staged a protest against the visit to the breakaway Chinese island by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The protesters, who had gathered in the park in front of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Taipei where Pelosi was staying during her visit on Tuesday night, voiced their opposition to the visit and chanted anti-US slogans.

The controversial visit by the high-ranking US official is seen as a blatant violation of the internationally-accepted "one China policy," under which nearly all world countries, the US included, acknowledge Chinese sovereignty over Taipei.
