Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai has been arrested for suspected collusion with foreign forces under the national security law Beijing imposed on the global financial hub in June, his top aide said on Twitter.

"Jimmy Lai is being arrested for collusion with foreign powers at this time," Mark Simon, a senior executive at Lai's media company Next Digital, which publishes local tabloid Apple Daily, said early on Monday.

Hong Kong police said on Monday they had arrested 7 people on suspicion of breaching the city's new national security law for offenses including collusion with foreign powers. Police said the operation was still ongoing and further arrests possible.
