Another night of violence for Hong Kong

Protesters stage a sit-in rally at the arrival hall of the Hong Kong International airport

Trump relayed the intelligence report in a tweet as protesters paralyzed Hong Kong airport for a second day in defiance of the city's leaders.

"My responsibility goes beyond this particular range of protest", Lam said on Tuesday, adding that violence had pushed the territory into a state of "panic and chaos". Additional identification checks were in place, but check-in counters were open and flights appeared to be operating normally. Check-in counters reopened to queues of hundreds of tired travellers who had waited overnight for their flights. Spokesperson Hua Chunying said that the remarks are whitewashing violent crimes as a struggle for human rights and freedom, and deliberately misinterpreting the work of Hong Kong police as violent repression when the police were only enforcing the law, fighting crimes and upholding social order.

Police condemned violent acts by protesters overnight and said on Wednesday a large group had "harassed and assaulted a visitor and a journalist". Trump said in a tweet. Five people were detained, bringing the total number of people arrested since the protests began in June to more than 600, police said.

The protests began in opposition to a now-suspended bill that would have allowed the extradition of suspects for trial in mainland China but have swelled into wider calls for democracy.

At a press briefing in Beijing, Mr Yang Guang, spokesman for the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office of the State Council, links foreign interference with separatism.

U.S. President Donald Trump has been reserved, telling reporters on Tuesday that what was unfolding in Hong Kong was "a very tough situation", but said he hopes it "it works out for liberty".

Riot police use pepper spray to disperse anti-extradition bill protesters during a mass demonstration after a woman was shot in the eye, at the Hong Kong worldwide airport, in Hong Kong China August 13, 2019. However, the PLA garrison has issued a video showing "anti-riot" exercises, and its top brass have warned violence is "absolutely impermissible".

"Hong Kong's radical demonstrators have repeatedly used extremely risky tools to attack police officers, which already constitutes a serious violent crime, and also shows the first signs of terrorism emerging", said Yang Guang, spokesman for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council. Passengers travelling to or from the airport during the next few days are urged to check the status of their flights.

Twitter reacts to Chris Cuomo threatening man who called him 'Fredo'
But, that doesn't mean Cuomo's reaction is the kind of behavior that an global news organization like CNN should be condoning. While Mr Tamburri recognised Fredo as inflammatory, he said it pales in comparison to other slurs against Italians.

Hong Kong's airport authority has obtained an interim injunction banning demonstrations at Hong Kong International Airport apart from in designated areas.

She denied that she was distancing herself from protesters, saying that different sectors of society were still supporting the young activists: "I am just stating what is right and what is wrong", she said.

The increasingly violent clashes between police and protesters have roiled the Asian financial hub. One 22-year-old frontliner who identified himself as Pun said protesters needed to re-evaluate their strategy to continue with the fight.

If China does intervene militarily, Congress will explode and there will be negative consequences, the official added. "We condemn all illegal activities and violent behaviour, which seriously undermine the fundamental principle of "One Country Two Systems" as enshrined in the Basic Law".

Intervention can only come after a request from the Hong Kong government for help, and for the "maintenance of public order and in disaster relief", the BBC reported.

Lam did not respond to repeated requests to clarify if she had the power to withdraw the extradition bill and satisfy a key demand made by the protesters, or if she needed Beijing's approval.

In a statement later on Tuesday, China's foreign ministry told Washington to stay out of its internal affairs after some USA lawmakers, including House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, condemned what they called acts of violence by police against protesters in Hong Kong.

Some tourists stopped to look at posters put up by protesters in the airport's arrival hall.
