Hong Kong Police’s Bloody Arrest of Protester Caught on Video
Thousands of protesters forced the cancellation of more than 150 flights at Hong Kong International Airport on Monday.
All afternoon flights — including about 150 departures and two dozen arrivals — were canceled, the airport said in a statement, according to The New York Times.
The airport added that the protest “seriously disrupted as a result of the public assembly at the airport today,” and a Hong Kong official called the demonstration “an illegal assembly.”
