Riot police clash with protesters at Hong Kong airport as flights cancelled for second day


Riot police moved into Hong Kong airport and used pepper spray against protesters amid some clashes as airport officials said operations had been “seriously disrupted” by a public assembly.

The Airport Authority said in a statement that a public assembly had blocked passageways to the airport’s restricted area, blocking passengers from proceeding to immigration.

Protesters also scuffled with police, who used pepper spray to keep back the crowds. Several police vehicles were blocked amid heated scenes, according to Reuters witnesses.
