Arrest of Firebrand Cardinal Highlights Split in Hong Kong’s Catholic Church

HONG KONG — Using an umbrella as his cane, 90-year-old Cardinal Joseph Zen entered the courtroom Wednesday to sit in a pre-trial hearing against activists facing national security charges. A thorn in Beijing’s side for decades, the pro-democracy fighter still pledges his days to supporting fellow activists even as his body becomes frail.

Soon after, police arrested Cardinal Zen and four others on charges of conspiring with foreign forces to endanger China’s national security.
