In Hong Kong, news outlet Apple Daily says it is shutting down, less than a week after authorities raided its newsroom, arresting editors and executives of the pro-democracy paper, and froze its accounts under the sweeping national security law. Meanwhile, the trial for the first person to be charged under the national security law started today. Tong Ying-kit was arrested last year after he collided with police officers while riding a motorbike and flying a flag with a popular protest slogan.
