Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai arrested under security law


Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai has been arrested on suspicion of collusion with foreign powers, his aide said, in the highest-profile use yet of the city's new national security law. “Jimmy Lai is being arrested for collusion with foreign powers at this time,” Mark Simon wrote on Twitter. Hong Kong police said seven people had been arrested on suspicion of violating the national security law, but the statement did not reveal the names of those arrested.
