Dow Dives as Beijing Rebukes Hong Kong ‘Terrorism’

The pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong have become the biggest threat to Beijing's rule of the semi-autonomous southern Chinese city since its handover from the British in 1997

"All other flights have been canceled for the rest of today", the airport statement said.

After refusing to leave, the group were finally offered transport to a hotel in Hong Kong were they are still waiting for news on a flight home, but many others remain stuck at the airport.

"Youngspiration hereby urge governments of the world and all freedom-loving people on Earth, to stand against China, the Enemy of Humanity, and its executioners, the Hong Kong Police Force and the incompetent Carrie Lam government", it said.

"Airport operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted as a result of the public assembly at the airport today", the city's airport authority said in a statement, without elaborating.

Hong Kong has reportedly ordered three of the vehicles at a cost of HK$27 million ($3.4 million), though police declined to confirm the exact price-tag.

However, the Hong Kong government has refused protesters' demands for an independent inquiry into the police actions.

Lau had overseen the government's crackdown on protesters during the 2014 pro-democracy Occupy movement. A San Francisco flight landed in Hong Kong earlier Monday with no issues, Gibbs said.

"We have lived in Hong Kong all our lives and this is the hardest time because the government is not listening to the citizens", said a 63-year-old man surnamed Leung, who joined a protest with his 93-year-old father in a wheelchair.

As all this was going on in subway stations and on the streets, airport protests continued.

A flight information board shows cancelled flights at Hong Kong's worldwide airport following a protest against the police brutality and the controversial extradition bill on August 12, 2019.

We haven't played since NY , which was a really good match for her", said Williams as she builds up to the US Open in two weeks. The 37-year-old is looking to shore up her hardcourt game for the August 26-to-Sept.

The company added it has put in place a flexible re-booking policy for customers wishing to change their travel plans to or from Hong Kong.

Malaysia Airlines said it would be cancelling its flights between Malaysia and Hong Kong until Tuesday afternoon.

The decision came after thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators flooded into the airport holding signs reading "Hong Kong is not safe" and "Shame on police".

Leading this charge with the state media tabloid, the Global Times which spoke to a "former senior police officer" who claimed that it was "technically impossible for the police to shoot her in the eye".

They were responding to allegations that police were using increasingly violent tactics to suppress protests. Riot police used tear gas to disperse the unruly crowds.

Protests began in Hong Kong in early June when Lam attempted to push through a legislative bill that would have allowed for residents to appear before criminal courts in mainland China.

According to hospital authorities, 13 people were injured and taken to hospital on August 11, with two people in serious condition, local media reported.

The cancellations come after a bloody night of clashes between protesters and police, and as protests against Beijing raged on for a 10th consecutive weekend.

"I think we have clear-minded people up in Beijing, they should realise to actually send the Chinese army into Hong Kong - to clamp down on some social unrest - is just unrealistic", she said. I'd like to ask the United States this question again: "what is the true intention behind your behaviors relating to Hong Kong?"

China, meanwhile, has also targeted the city's corporate giants, demanding flag carrier Cathay Pacific Airways suspend staff involved in the demonstrations - a move which also brought pressure on the airline from mainland businesses. Officially Hong Kong and Macao are classified as "special administrative regions" with a greater degree of autonomy than mainland Chinese provinces.
