Hong Kong pro-independence lawmakers disqualified from office
 

Hong Kong's high court has ruled that two pro-independence lawmakers are disqualified from taking their seats in the Legislative Council.
Sixtus Leung and Yau Wai-ching refused to pledge allegiance to China when being sworn in last month.
Last week, Beijing pre-empted the ruling by saying that those who did not take the oath properly could not take office.
Thousands protested, calling it a violation of judicial independence.
But there have also been protests against calls for further independence for Hong Kong.
