Flights from Hong Kong were both canceled or delayed due to a large number of protesters blocking the departure terminal.

Protesters started a mass sit-in Monday and expanded their presence Tuesday.

Last week, the district was the scene of a protest against police after they arrested a university student leader for buying laser pointers, which police said were being used as a weapon against them. On Tuesday, small confrontations and scuffles between the protesters and police occurred, with police deploying tear gas to disperse the crowds.

Officers subsequently retreated from the airport. Officials said they wouldn't allow any check-ins after 4:30 p.m. for departing flights.

The activists are calling for multiple reforms, for a controversial extradition bill and police brutality.

He says additional suspects are expected to be arrested, including some who assaulted an officer Tuesday night as riot police sought to clear the terminal, prompting him to draw his sidearm.

Checks will be set up at the entrance to terminal buildings. "Affected passengers please contact their respective airlines for flight arrangement".

"Take a minute to look at our city, our home", Chief Executive Carrie Lam said, her voice cracking, at a news conference in the government headquarters complex, which is fortified behind 6-foot (1.8m) -high water-filled barricades. "Could we bear to push it into an abyss where everything will perish?"

He said that's "the rule of law, the respect for human rights and fundamental liberties, and the autonomy of the judicial system". He says the Sham Shui Po protest has hit his business for the day, but still supports young demonstrators who he describes as smart and fearless.

Trump tweeted- 'Many people are blaming me and America for the ongoing problems in Hong Kong.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is calling for a peaceful solution to the unrest in Hong Kong amid fears China could use force to quell pro-democracy protests. "These facts are only too obvious. I'd like to ask the United States this question again: What is the true intention behind your behaviors relating to Hong Kong?" Beijing has repeatedly warned foreign nations against interference in its internal affairs.

The semi-autonomous island has seen almost continuous demonstrations since early June, that have increased in severity, magnitude and violence.
