Several prominent Hong Kong democracy activists have been arrested in less than 24 hours amid a police crackdown. 

Joshua Wong and Agnes Chow of the Demosisto Party were arrested for illegally organizing a protest, before being released on bail.

Independence campaigner Andy Chan was arrested at the airport yesterday while trying to fly to Japan. 

They are among 900 people arrested since protests began in the month of June. Lawmaker Cheng Chung-tai of the Civic Passion party was also detained. 

The protests began when Hong Kong's Beijing-backed government tried to pass a bill allowing extraditions to mainland China. 

Demonstrations against a now-suspended extradition bill have since turned into wider demands for more autonomy in the former British colony.
