The airport posted an update on its website today (Aug. 13), advising travellers that all check-in processes have now been suspended and that passengers should leave the building and consult with their respective airlines. According to reports, demonstrators have blocked at least one security gate with luggage carts.

The cancellation of flights at HKG began yesterday, marking the fourth day of the airport’s occupation. While the original demonstrations were in response to a proposed extradition bill that would see criminal suspects tried in mainland China, protests have now targeted   the use of increased force by Hong Kong police during those initial demonstrations.
