The Hong Kong International Airport cancelled flights for the second day in a row, because of protesters in the area.

Major protests in Hong Kong have been ongoing since June. It started from calls to scrap a controversial extradition bill, which would send criminals back to mainland China. Chief Executive Carrie Lam later called the bill “dead”, but protests against the government and the actions of the Hong Kong Police Force continued every weekend. ARIC JOHN SY CUA
