Hong Kong police arrest Apple Daily editors and executives

Authorities cite articles said to urge imposition of sanctions on China and city

HONG KONG -- Hong Kong national security police arrested five top editors and executives of the outspoken newspaper Apple Daily and its parent company, and raided the group's offices early Thursday morning in relation to allegations of "collusion with foreign forces."

Collusion with foreign forces is one of four offenses created under the national security law imposed on the city by Beijing a year ago.
