(AP) — Hong Kong’s high court has struck down a face mask ban aimed at protesters trying to hide their identity to avoid arrest.

A ruling issued Monday said that the ban infringes on fundamental rights more than is reasonably necessary for the furtherance of its goals.

The government used its emergency powers to impose the ban last month.
