Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai arrested under security law
HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong police have arrested media tycoon Jimmy Lai and raided the publisher’s headquarters in the highest-profile use yet of the new national security law Beijing imposed on the city in June after protests last year. Hong Kong police said seven people had been arrested but didn’t reveal their names. Lai owns popular tabloid Apple Daily and is an outspoken pro-democracy figure in Hong Kong who regularly criticizes China’s authoritarian rule. Lai’s aide said police searched both Lai and his son’s home and had detained other members of a media group Lai founded.
