Hong Kong police have said two teenagers who were among the 12 pro-democracy activists detained in China may face additional charges in the city, after mainland authorities handed the pair over to the force on Wednesday.

The two minor suspects Liu Tsz-man, 18, and Hoang Lam-phuc, 17, arrived in Hong Kong around noon, after four months of detention in Shenzhen over a bid to escape to Taiwan by speedboat. They were transferred to the Tin Shui Wai Police Station.

The 12 detainees – facing criminal charges in Hong Kong linked to the anti-extradition bill protests – were captured by Chinese coastguard on August 23 while trying to flee their home city. They stood accused of crossing the border illegally and organising an illegal border crossing.
