Hong Kong airport reopens amid protests

After yesterday’s protests Hong Kong airport in China has reopened, but more than two hundred flights have been cancelled. The police admitted that during Sunday’s protests there were plain-clothes policemen who took part in the demonstration so that they could be in a position to control those who began to protest violently. Video released showed plain-clothes police arresting some of the demonstrators. This aroused further anger among those protesting against the government who have called for an inquiry into police actions.

The Hong Kong protests have been going on for over two months, even during Hong Kong’s extradition bill. Yesterday’s protest saw numerous protesters occupying Hong Kong airport with the consequence that many flights were cancelled.
