Leaders of the “Occupy” democracy movement in Hong Kong have been jailed on public nuisance charges.
Their protests in 2014 lasted almost three months and brought Hong Kong to a virtual standstill as hundreds of thousands of people blocked roads, demanding open elections.
Nine activists appeared for sentencing in court on Wednesday.
