HONG KONG: A Hong Kong man has been arrested on suspicion of “inciting secession” from China on social media, police said on Friday, under a new security law that punishes the offence with up to life imprisonment.

Police initially raided the home of the man, aged 23, and his mother following a tip-off they were selling gun parts, and found military knives, a pepper ball launcher and an extendable baton, said senior superintendent Li Kwai-wah. The duo were arrested on suspicions of possessing firearms without licences on Thursday.
