HK pro-democracy tabloid Apple Daily increases production after police raid


Hong Kong pro-democracy tabloid Apple Daily increased its Friday press run after 500 police officers raided its newsroom the previous day and seized reporting materials as part of a probe into whether articles threatened China's national security. Police arrested five executives, including Apple Daily's chief editor, at dawn on Thursday and froze HK$18 million ($2.32 million) of assets owned by three companies linked to the paper before cordoning off the building.
