MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 12th August, 2019) All flights to and from Hong Kong International Airport have been canceled on Monday, the airport authority said, after a massive sit-in inside the terminals caused severe disruption.
All passengers have been advised to leave the terminal buildings "as soon as possible" and contact their respective airlines to change flight arrangements.
Protests began more than two months ago after a local legislature opened debates on a bill that would have allowed extradition to mainland China. The city's chief executive, Carrie Lam, has since declared the bill "dead."
