The ranks of pro-democracy politicians in Hong Kong has thinned further after another three of the city’s district councillors either resigned or said they intended to quit.

On Monday, Ben Chung, who was a member of the Sai Kung District Council, announced his decision to quit on social media from prison where he is being held on remand after he was charged under the Beijing-imposed national security law for organising and participating in a primary election for the since-postponed Legislative Council election.
