Hong Kong arrests journalist investigating police misconduct

Choy Yuk-ling made documentary on authorities' response in 2019 subway attack

HONG KONG -- The Hong Kong police on Tuesday arrested a news producer who investigated a mob attack on pro-democracy protesters in the city last year, adding to concerns about a crackdown against journalists in the Chinese territory.

Choy Yuk-ling is a producer for public broadcaster Radio Television Hong Kong, which has faced pressure from authorities for its critical coverage of the city's police force. Choy's documentary covered the delayed response by police to the incident in July 2019, in which mobsters attacked protesters and commuters on the subway.
