2014 Hong Kong protests
Hong Kong activist Benny Tai says he will come back stronger after being jailed over the 2014 protests.
The pro-democracy campaigners vowed to fight on but were convicted over their role in protests.
Nine pro-democracy activists have been found guilty of public nuisance charges for their involvement in protests which called for greater autonomy from China. The protests became known as the "Umbrella Movement" after people used umbrellas to shield themselves from tear gas fired by police. Among them are three prominent activists - Chu Yiu-ming, Benny Tai and Chan Kin-man - who are seen as the faces of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement. Dr. Man-kei Tam, Director of human rights groups Amnesty International in Hong Kong, gave his reaction to the verdict.
