Hong Kong flight disruptions to increase: airport strike update
[HONG KONG] Disruptions to flights in and out of Hong Kong are set to worsen on Monday after protesters coordinated strikes to bring the city to a standstill.
After dozens of morning cancellations, airport authorities said they'll start rescheduling flights at 12 p.m. local time and reduce arrivals and departures. Demonstrators targeted key transport links and the airport's high-speed rail service was suspended because of obstructions on trains and platforms.
At a press briefing on Monday, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam condemned protesters for pushing Hong Kong to the verge of a "very dangerous situation." Here's what we know so far:
