The Wider Image: On trial on riot charges, Hong Kong newlyweds prepared for life apart
For Valentine's Day this year, Henry Tong gave his wife, Elaine To, a photo book. It holds the memories of their life together: their first date six years ago, kissing in front of a pro-democracy "Lennon wall"; the tattooed bands on their ring fingers, symbolizing a bond not easily erased; and their wedding day last year, when he vowed to her, "Not even a nuclear explosion could break us apart." The book doesn?t mention the 50 hours that Henry and Elaine spent in jail in July last year, just four days before their wedding. Arrested at a pro-democracy protest, the couple were kept in different cells at the police station, separated by a long corridor and a large wall. Not knowing if they?d get out in time for their wedding, the couple tried to stay together by shouting across the cells. "We couldn?t see each other. But if we yelled loud enough, we could listen to each other?s voices," Elaine said. REUTERS/Tyrone Siu SEARCH "HONG KONG NEWLYWEDS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
