China passes controversial Hong Kong security law

Beijing has passed a sweeping national security law for Hong Kong that critics fear could override existing legal processes and further erode the city’s civil and political freedoms. The National People’s Congress, reportedly, passed the law unanimously on Tuesday morning. State media is expected to publish details of the law – criminalizing secession, subversion, terrorism – later on Tuesday.
