TikTok has said it will quit Hong Kong after China imposed a new security law on the city.

 

"In light of recent events, we've decided to stop operations of the TikTok app in Hong Kong," a spokesman told the BBC.

 

The company's exit from the city will come "within days," according to the Reuters news agency.

 

Facebook and Twitter said this week they were "pausing" co-operation with Hong Kpng polce over user information.

 

The short-form video app was launched by China-based ByteDance for users outside mainland China as part of a strategy to grow its global audience.

 

The tech company operates a similar short video sharing app in China called Douyin.
