Police on Monday arrested pro-democracy activist Agnes Chow Ting and media tycoon Jimmy Lai, as well as two of Lai’s sons and executives from Lai’s Next Digital. His company operates Apple Daily, a popular tabloid newspaper in Hong Kong that supports pro-democracy protests and frequently condemns the Chinese government. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the sweeping enforcement of the new national security law enacted by China in Hong Kong.
