HONG KONG: Media tycoon Jimmy Lai, owner of Hong Kong's Apple Daily, and pro-democracy activist Agnes Chow, have been released on bail after they were arrested as part of a crackdown under a new national security law imposed by Beijing. Lai was released in the early hours of Wednesday, flanked by his lawyers, and greeted by supporters who chanted "fight till the end" and "support apple, have an apple a day", referring to the pro-democracy tabloid. He did not make any comment after his release. Lai's bail was set at HK$300,000 ($38,461), plus a HK$200,000 ($25,805) surety. (Agencies)
