Associated Press

HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong police are offering rewards for information leading to the arrests of five activists based overseas, whom it accuses of breaching a harsh national security law imposed by Beijing. The arrest warrants and the bounties of over $128,000 each were issued for three activists and two hosts of a YouTube channel focusing on current affairs. Their social media profiles and earlier media reports indicated they had moved to the United States and Britain. The bounty is a further intensification of the Hong Kong government’s crackdown on dissidents after the anti-government protests in 2019.
