(Worthy News) - Pro-democracy protesters clashed with riot police at Hong Kong's airport Tuesday night, after demonstrators shut down operations at the airport for the second straight day, flooding the main terminal in an attack likened by Chinese officials to "terrorism".
Officers armed with pepper spray and batons confronted the protesters, who used luggage carts to barricade entrances to the airport terminal. Police said they arrested five people for unlawful assembly, assaulting police officers and possessing weapons.
Some protesters detained, harassed and assaulted a traveler and a journalist, and obstructed ambulance workers from taking the two men to the hospital, officials said, adding that other protesters attacked a police officer and snatched a baton from him. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
