Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong was sentenced Friday to 10 months in jail for joining an annual vigil commemorating the Tiananmen Massacre in June, which was banned due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was the third time in five months the 24 year old was handed a jail sentence for taking part in pro-democracy rallies. The latest jail term will be added to two others he received and is currently serving, totaling 17 and a half months, for his roles in unauthorized protests held during the 2019 anti-government protest movement in Hong Kong.
