Seven Hong Kong police officers have been jailed for two years each for beating a handcuffed protester.

According to BBC News, the group was convicted on Tuesday of assaulting social worker and activist Ken Tsang (sang) as he took part in the 2014 pro-democracy rallies.

TV cameras caught the officers removing Mr. Tsang from the protest area to a nearby park and kicking and punching him as he lay on the ground.

The incident, at the height of the protests, caused public outrage.
