Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Agnes Chow has been released from prison after serving more than six months behind bars.
The 24-year-old was jailed in December last year for taking part in unauthorised assemblies during huge anti-government protests in 2019.
The rallies sparked a crackdown on dissent across the region.
A crowd of journalists greeted Ms Chow as she left the Tai Lam Center for Women, in Tuen Mun, in the New Territories, Hong Kong on Saturday.
Only a small group of supporters stood outside for her as she left the maximum-security women’s prison, which is thought to be a reflection on the government’s threats to jail those it deems to be in violation of a sweeping national security law imposed on the territory by Beijing a year ago.
Ms Chow rose to prominence during the “Umbrella Movement” of 2014 when she, and activist Joshua Wong, led a student protest against proposed reforms to Hong Kong’s electoral system which would have allowed Beijing to choose candidates.
