The already tense situation at Hong Kong international airport became outright chaotic as Chinese riot police clashed with protesters blocking outgoing flights, with reporters and travelers among the injured. Demonstrators demanding democracy blocked the departures terminal late on Tuesday local time, preventing any passengers from leaving the airport. Incoming flights were not affected. One of the travelers arriving from the Chinese mainland was accused of being an undercover police officer and attacked by protesters. Police tried to clear the way for first responders, dressed in orange gear, to reach the injured man. He was taken to an area hospital.
