After being found guilty of inciting secession and terrorism on Tuesday, the first person to be convicted under Hong Kong's broad national security law faces life in prison in a momentous court judgment that is expected to have far-reaching repercussions for the city's judicial system. Tong Ying-kit, 24, was convicted guilty of terrorism after driving his motorcycle into a gathering of police officers, wounding three of them.
