Hong Kong activists jailed over Tiananmen crackdown vigil:
Nine activists and former lawmakers in Hong Kong were handed jail sentences of up to 10 months over their roles in last year’s banned Tiananmen Square candlelight vigil. The nine are among 12 defendants who pleaded guilty this month to participating in the vigil, which was the only major public commemoration on Chinese soil of the 1989 crackdown in Beijing on studentled protests. Three others were given suspended sentences. Police last year banned the annual vigil for the first time in three decades, citing public health risks from the coronavirus pandemic.
