Summary

HONG KONG —  Hong Kong protesters on Sunday shifted their focus back to the city’s airport, hindering access to one of the world’s busiest international transit hubs, prompting clashes with police, transportation snarls and confusion. “They are young people fighting for their future.”The rallies followed intense clashes between protesters and police in Hong Kong on Saturday, a day that ended with fear and violence at subway stops when riot police stormed trains filled with commuters going about their evening, swinging batons and making arrests.On Sunday, police were waiting at the piers for ferries from Lantau Island, where the airport is located. The government refuses to make concessions, and protesters have been undeterred by mass arrests and police use of force.[With Hong Kong in turmoil, questions grow over leader’s refusal to offer concessions to protesters]Hong Kong International Airport, a major Asian hub ranked among the world’s most efficient, has been the focus of previous demonstrations. Police confirmed the arrest.“I started crying because all he wanted to do was to fight for Hong Kong and experience the protests himself, but I couldn’t keep him safe,” said the older protester.A doctor returning from his shift at a public hospital left his subway car after an announcement from the MTR.
