Clashes erupt at Hong Kong airport
[HONG KONG] Protesters clashed with police at Hong Kong's international airport on Tuesday evening after flights were disrupted for a second day, plunging the former British colony deeper into turmoil.
The scuffles broke out in the evening between police and protesters, after an injured person was taken out of the main terminal by medics.
Several police vehicles were blocked by protesters, and riot police moved in, pushing some protesters back and using pepper spray at times.
Hong Kong's Airport Authority said operations at the airport had been "seriously disrupted".
