After days of disruptions, the Airport Authority said it had obtained a temporary injunction banning protesters from entering certain areas.

Lam's remarks echoed those of Hong Kong business leaders amid falling share prices and fears of an economic downturn, especially in the property sector.

The airline over the weekend moved to comply with the demand from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), suspending a pilot arrested during anti-government protests in Hong Kong and firing two airport employees citing misconduct.

The airport, one of the world's busiest, has been the site of daily protests since last Friday but they have been mostly peaceful until chaos broke out on Tuesday. However, protesters soon found that the name printed on his pass - Xu Jinyang (徐錦煬) - was on the Shenzhen Futian Police Branch's (深圳福田分局) list of auxiliary police, and they proceeded to tie Xu's hands with plastic straps, according to Undergrad HKUSU Instant News.

China's People's Armed Police was assembled in Shenzhen for "exercises", the state-backed Global Times newspaper said. Undoubtedly US officials are watching events in Hong Kong closely and calculating whether they can be used to further American interests.

"Their behaviors show extreme contempt for the rule of law", said Xu Luying, a spokeswoman for China's Hong Kong and Macao Affiars Office. "I hope it works out peacefully, nobody gets hurt, nobody gets killed", he said.
