Flights have been suspended at Hong Kong’s international airport, the airport authority said on Tuesday, citing disruptions caused by anti-government protests.

A report by Al Jazeera News said the second day of suspension comes –  after a pro-democracy protest brought the air transport hub to a standstill.

The airport authority said in a statement, that Terminal operations at Hong Kong International Airport have been seriously disrupted – as a result of the public assembly,”

The city’s leader Carrie Lam denounced the demonstrations, saying that “lawbreaking activities in the name of freedom” were damaging the rule of law, and that the Asian financial hub’s recovery from anti-government protests could take a long time.
