Trump confirms China moving troops to Hong Kong border

Riot police stormed part of the airport as protesters crippled terminals

Riot police stormed part of the airport as protesters crippled terminals

Earlier on Wednesday morning, protesters were debating online how and when to apologise on LIHKG, an online Reddit-style forum where protesters crowdsource decisions.

After a brief period early in the day when flights were able to take off and land, the airport authority suspended check-in services for departing flights as of 4:30pm. Thai AirAsia also announced that it had managed to resume some flights between the two destinations before the airport closed again. Although airport security quickly intervened to stop the fight, protesters discovered that the man carried a Hong Kong and Macau Pass, the travel document Chinese citizens need to enter Hong Kong, and began questioning the man, demanding to know if he worked for the Chinese police.

A convoy of olive-green Chinese military trucks was seen heading toward the semi-autonomous city, which has been wracked by anti-government protests for weeks.

The Royal Thai Consulate-General suggested that Thais due to board flights at the airport on Tuesday and today should consult their airlines for updates on the status of their flights and avoid protest-ridden areas at the airport if at all possible.

On Monday, as demonstrators shut down Hong Kong's airport, a Chinese official said Hong Kong had reached a "critical moment" and that protesters "have begun to show signs of terrorism".

Hong Kong protesters block access to the departure gates during another demonstration at Hong Kong's worldwide airport on August 13, 2019. The woman can be heard blaming the protesters for causing stress to travellers.

Vigilantism also broke out when crowds turned on two men suspected of being interlopers.

The chaotic situation eventually ended when protesters allowed ambulance workers to take the man away on a stretcher.

Soon afterwards a second man, wearing a yellow journalist vest, was surrounded, zip-tied and then beaten by a small group who accused him of being a spy.

Additionally, the team is shooting for full backward compatibility. "We want to respect the games that you've bought from us". "Last year we talked about xCloud and then we said we were working on new game consoles, but that's all I said".

State-run media posted videos this week of the People's Armed Police, a paramilitary force specializing in riot control, assembling across the border in Shenzhen.

The man was later driven away in an ambulance after fellow protesters and volunteer medics carried him away.

This is not the Hong Kong I've learned to love. This is not the Hong Kong I want to be in.

"If Hong Kong rioters can not read the signal of having armed police gathering in Shenzhen, then they are asking for self-destruction", the Global Times post warned.

Protesters blamed the injury on a police bean-bag round and used social media to gather their numbers at the arrival and departure halls, with hundreds of flights cancelled in the pandemonium. They have been seen on a number of occasions hurling bricks and other items at riot police, while a police officer over the weekend was injured by a "petrol bomb".

The protesters also found that Xu had received a message saying "Everyone to the second terminal building" on Wechat, a Chinese social media app.

"Our Intelligence has informed us that the Chinese Government is moving troops to the Border with Hong Kong".

"Everyone should be calm and safe!" Trump said in a tweet. I think it'll work out and I hope it works out for liberty.
