Hong Kong airport reopens after a night of chaos

Hong Kong airport has re-opened after a night of chaos during which the protestors once again came to blows with the anti-riot police.

Yesterday, hundreds of flights were cancelled after protestors stormed the airport. Early on Wednesday morning, the flights began working again although some of them were delayed and others remained cancelled.

After days of obstruction, the airport authorities said that it has obtained a temporary injunction which bans protestors from entering into certain zones in the airport.

In a statement, it said that people will be prevented from attending or participating in demonstrations at the airport except for a zone which has been identified by the airport authorities. This is all taking place against the backdrop of ten weeks of protests in the city of Hong Kong against the Chinese Government.
