(AP) — Two former editors from a Hong Kong online pro-democracy news outlet were charged with sedition and denied bail Thursday, a day after the outlet said it would cease operations following a police raid on its office and seven arrests. National security police say they charged two men with conspiracy to publish a seditious publication but did not identify them. According to local media reports, the two were both editors at Stand News, an online pro-democracy news outlet. Police also said they will prosecute the company for sedition.
