    Dozens of Hong Kongers queue in the early morning hours of Friday for an edition of the pro-democracy paper Apple Daily as it was delivered to news stands. Many, to show support, bought several copies. On Thursday, more than 500 officers had raided the paper's newsroom in an operation authorities said was sparked by articles that allegedly appealed for sanctions against China. The paper and its jailed owner Jimmy Lai have long been a thorn in Beijing's side with unapologetic support for the financial hub's pro-democracy movement and scathing criticism of China's authoritarian leaders.
