Police use pepper spray in scuffles with protesters at Hong Kong airport
Date created : Latest update :
Flights leaving Hong Kong's airport were disrupted for a second day as protesters staged new rallies on Tuesday, hours after the territory’s embattled leader warned them against heading down “a path of no return”. The airport's arrival and departure halls were blocked by thousands of protesters who were gathered in the hub for the fifth consecutive day to press their calls for democratic reforms and an independent inquiry into alleged police brutality. The airport authority announced that check-in services for departing flights were suspended but that it did not expect arriving flights to be affected.
