Hong Kong leader urges calm as protest tensions rise; airport reopens

She said violence by protesters had pushed Hong Kong into

As she spoke to reporters, her voice cracking with emotion at one point, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index fell by more than 1% to its lowest level since Jan. 4. The index was down around 1.5% soon after.

The increasingly violent demonstrations have plunged the Chinese-ruled territory into its most serious crisis in decades, presenting Chinese leader Xi Jinping with one of his biggest challenges since he came to power in 2012.

They also say police have used excessive force, firing tear gas and bean bag pellets at close range, and are calling for an independent inquiry into the crisis.

Some Hong Kong legal experts say the official description of terrorism could lead to the use of anti-terror laws.

Its administrator blamed demonstrators for halting flights on Monday but the exact trigger for the closure was not clear because protesters occupying the arrivals hall for the past five days have been peaceful.

Shares in Cathay, which fell to a 10-year-low on Monday, continued their slide on Tuesday and were down more than 4.5% in morning trading.

Kate Flannery, an Australian traveller heading for Paris, said the handling of the protests appeared chaotic on Monday night.

“It is possible that the airport authority will cancel more flights as they need to control the air traffic movements at the Hong Kong International Airport,” he said.
