Pro-democracy activists light up iconic Lion Rock to urge the release of 12 Hong Kong activists detained on the Chinese mainland, who were arrested at sea after attempting to flee to Taiwan, in Hong Kong, China October 12, 2020. Accused of crimes tied to anti-government protests in Hong Kong last year, the group is being detained in China\u0027s southern city of Shenzhen after authorities intercepted their boat and accused them of illegal border crossing.
