Hundreds of protesters arrested on first day of Hong Kong national security law

The first day of the controversial national security in Hong Kong was met with protests as hundreds were arrested.

The widely-drawn crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism and colluding with foreign forces could now carry a life sentence, a move welcomed by the city's pro-Beijing leader, Carrie Lam.

She toasted the legislation imposed by the Chinese government, saying it will "restore stability in Hong Kong after a year of escalating violence and riots".
