Live – Protesters at Hong Kong Airport – blocking all flights. Join the euronews live stream – replay
Hong Kong International Airport cancelled all departures on Monday. Thousands of anti-government protesters occupied and caused disruption.
Passengers told not to travel to the airport, which is one of the world’s busiest transport hubs.
In a statement, officials blamed “seriously disrupted” operations.
Many of those protesting are critical of the actions of police. On Sunday police filmed firing tear gas and non-lethal ammunition at close range.
Some protesters wore bandages over their eyes in response to images of a woman bleeding heavily from her eye on Sunday, having reportedly been shot by a police projectile.
In a statement on Monday afternoon, Hong Kong’s Airport Authority said they were cancelling all flights that were not yet checked in.
Some British flights managed to land on Monday but not able to depart. Are you planning to travel there? Let us know.
