Apple Daily: Hong Kong police arrest editor, four other executives

Hong Kong police arrested the editor-in-chief and four other executives of pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily on Thursday, on suspicion of violating the national security law. Apple Daily is owned by media mogul Jimmy Lai, who was also arrested and jailed on a string of charges. Dozens of prominent activists have been arrested since the national security law was introduced last year. They then separately visited the homes of editor-in-chief Ryan Law, parent company Next Digital's CEO Cheung Kim-hung, COO Chow Tat-kuen, Apple Daily publisher Chan Pui-man and Director Cheung Chi-wai, and arrested them. Police did not name those arrested but confirmed that the five people, aged between 47 and 63, were arrested for "Collusion with a foreign country or with external elements to endanger national security".
