Falun Gong followers meditate in Hong Kong, May 9, 2001. Members of the spiritual movement have over the years protested in Hong Kong after Beijing banned the group on the mainland in 1999, declaring it a "cult". While largely tolerated in Hong Kong, 16 members were convicted in 2002 for protesting outside Beijing's liaison office in the territory. Eight of those convictions were later overturned by Hong Kong's highest court. REUTERS/Kin Cheung/File photo SEARCH "HONGKONG TIMELINE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
