On Monday afternoon, a protest at Hong Kong International Airport, which Hong Kong police said involved more than 5,000 participants, forced the airport authority to cancel all remaining flights in and out of the special administrative region.

All check-in services were suspended, said the Airport Authority Hong Kong in a statement on Monday afternoon, adding that departing flights that had completed check-in procedures and arriving flights already heading to Hong Kong were excluded from the suspension.
