A court in Hong Kong has convicted nine prominent pro-democracy activists for taking part in an unauthorised protest in 2019.
Those convicted include media tycoon Jimmy Lai, former legislators and Martin Lee, the man considered Hong Kong's "father of democracy".
Two others had pleaded guilty before the verdict.
Critics say all this is part of a crackdown on dissent, which escalated after China imposed a National Security Law in Hong Kong last year.
