Immigration procedures were suspended from Hong Kong airport today (12th) with protests following the 10th week in Hong Kong. The protesters gathered at the airport for four days to protest and the authorities canceled all flights to and from Hong Kong.
Reporter Chung Dong-yeon reports.
Thousands of demonstrators gathered at Hong Kong airport arrivals slogans.
[Violence police turn our eyes! Get it back!]
A woman who participated in the protest yesterday was condemned by a rubber bullet shot by a police officer and condemned for blindness.
Many of the protesters covered their eyes with cloth to protest.
As thousands of protesters flock to the airport, Hong Kong airport officials havetily announced that they will stop immigration until tomorrow.
Passengers were inconvenient to check in and out, and roads were blocked as protesters walked in, effectively shutting down airports.
Airport demonstrations continue and it is not known when airport operations will resume.
Hong Kong's atmosphere is on the rise, with reports of Chinese armored vehicles and trucks being seen in military propaganda in Hong Kong.
Since then, videos of armored car parades in Shenzhen have begun to spread rapidly on social media Weibo in China.
The Hong Kong government has publicly announced the possibility of the use of force, saying the military in case of emergency is specified in the Basic Law.
[Yang Guang / Hong Kong Macau office spokesman: Hong Kong Basic Law is clearly defined. I don't have to say more.]
But some observers say it is difficult for China, which has a lot of criticism from the international community, to go beyond Umpo and actually put down the force.
