Hong Kong protests: Police officer pulls out firearm at airport | ITV News

Violent clashes have broken out at Hong Kong airport after riot police stormed the terminal to disperse protesters.

Officers charged on pro-democracy campaigners, arresting people staging a sit-in at one of the world’s busiest airports.

The airport has been forced to cancel more than 300 flights on the second day of disruption – coming after more than 200 planes were grounded on Monday.

A police officer also drew his firearm as protesters backed him up against an airport terminal window – the moment was caught on camera by freelance journalist Michael Zhang.
