Hong Kong airport says operations now normal

Former Trump Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland and former Army Intelligence & Special Operations Brett Velicovich says the Chinese government is very anxious the Hong Kong protests could spill over to Beijing.

"We have resumed check-ins", a spokesman for the airport told AFP, confirming flights would be resuming within the next hour at one of the world´s busiest aviation hubs. All flights in and out of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region were cancelled on Monday due to a protest held in the Hong Kong International Airport, according to local airport authority.

Chinese troops last week amassed at the Hong Kong border, sparking concerns Beijing could enact martial law, leading to a citywide strike that ended up in the cancellation of more than 200 flights. "I didn't make any plans for Hong Kong", said Chakravarti, who had a carry-on bag with laptop, charger and an extra shirt while the rest of his luggage already was checked in on his Singapore Airlines flight. Tear gas was sacked at crowds in the districts of Hong Kong, Kowloon and the New Territories.

"Our team is making arrangements for our customers to complete their journeys", Gibbs said.

Hong Kong has experienced more than two months of mass protests calling for democratic reforms and an independent inquiry into police conduct in the wake of proposed legislation that would have sent people accused of a crime to mainland China for trial. That bill was withdrawn.
