HONG KONG -- Hong Kong police are investigating the pro-democracy group that organizes the city's annual commemoration of the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown for suspected collusion with foreign groups.

Under the national security law imposed on the city by Beijing in June 2020, such collusion is a crime punishable by up to life imprisonment.
