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.”
