Hong Kong activists jailed over protest


HONG KONG— Three prominent Hong Kong pro-democracy activists were sentenced to prison Wednesday for a protest outside police headquarte­rs as authoritie­s stepped up a crackdown on opposition to tighten control by Beijing over the territory.

The activists — Joshua Wong, Agnes Chow and Ivan Lam— are among more than 10,000 people who have been arrested since June 2019 on charges related to protests against a proposed extraditio­n law that expanded to include demands for greater democracy.
