Hong Kong Police has arrested several activists in the pro-democracy demonstrations that have roiled the territory over the last three months. One of them is Joshua Wong, a veteran activist and co-founder of pro-democracy group Demosisto.
Authorities say Wong and others are being investigated for their role in an unauthorised protest in June, when protesters blockaded police headquarters. Police also arrested Andy Chan, a founder of a banned pro-independence party. Wong was one of the student leaders of major pro-democracy demonstrations in 2014. He was released from prison in June after serving a five-week sentence related to those protests.
