He was allowed to return home Thursday on $12,755 cash bail but barred from leaving Hong Kong.The 2014 movement fizzled out, its demands unmet and leaders arrested. It laid the groundwork for the new protest movement that began in June with mass opposition to extradition legislation but has since encompassed more sweeping democratic demands.The Associated Press
