Riot Police Storm Hong Kong Airport as Protesters Force Second Day of Cancellations

By KARSON YIU, MORGAN WINSOR and CONOR FINNEGANHONG KONG — Aug 13, 2019, 12:31 PM ET

Riot police stormed the Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday as thousands of anti-government protesters forced flights to be canceled for the second straight day.

"Terminal operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted, and all check-in processes have now been suspended," the airport authority said in a statement.

As hundreds of outgoing and incoming flights were cancelled at one of the world's busiest airport and a major hub for the region, travelers were advised to leave the terminals as quickly as possible and contact the airlines for more information.

Protesters held an orderly sit-in at one of the terminals and clashed with police in chaotic scenes elsewhere at the airport.

The demonstrations have become more heated since the movement's peaceful beginnings 10 weeks ago, when hundreds of thousands of protesters in the semi-autonomous city marched against the government's proposal to change an extradition law that would allow individuals to be sent to mainland China for trial and prompting fears that China would use the proposed legislation to round up political dissidents.

1. There is no way this is going to turn out well for the demonstrators or the citizens of Hong Kong

China will not put up with their disruption of business for long. As long as they stayed in the streets and did not disrupt the lives of others they may have gotten away with it.

Not now.
