One of Hong Kong’s last remaining pro-democracy news sites has been shut down after police raided its offices and arrested senior staff members.

Stand News said its website and social media would be taken down, while all employees have been dismissed.

More than 200 officers were involved in the raid – arresting seven current and former editors on charges of conspiracy to publish a seditious publication.
