Hong Kong arrests first protester defying new security law

The Hong Kong police have arrested the first protester after the new national security law had been passed. The man has been standing in Causeway Bay with a flag titling "Hong Kong Independence". Thousands of Hong Kongers have defied the police ban and went to the streets chanting slogans and protesting the new security law as the ban of the annual July 1 pro-democracy protests has been upheld by the police.
