Hong Kong student leader Joshua Wong arrested over protests


SHAFAQNA – Hong Kong student leaders including the teenage face of the pro-democracy movement, Joshua Wong, were arrested Friday on charges relating to mass protests as authorities target prominent figures who spearheaded the rallies.

“I was held for three hours and I was arrested on charges of calling for, inciting and participating in an unauthorised assembly,” Wong, 18, said after turning himself in at the request of police.

Three other student leaders who attended the police headquarters with Wong also face similar charges, but all four were released unconditionally.
