Hong Kong student jailed

Hong Kong: A Hong Kong judge sentenced a secondary school student on Monday to nearly eight years in prison for stabbing a police officer in the neck during the 2019 pro-democracy protests. Hui Tim-lik, then 19, jabbed a boxcutter into the neck of a police officer during a protest in October 2019 -- at the peak of a pro-democracy movement rallying against China’s authoritarian hold on the territory.
