Hours after Hong Kong’s pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily announced its imminent closure, hundreds of supporters gathered at the newspaper’s headquarters for a final farewell.
They brought gifts and ribbons to the fence and chanted slogans in the rain. Some were seen crying.
The publication decided to close it after its reporting was accused of breaching national security law, which led to the company’s assets being frozen.
The BBC documented the final hours of the Apple Daily as staff produced the latest edition of the newspaper, speaking to supporters and journalists at the scene.
