Police have fired tear gas at multiple locations in Hong Kong to disperse demonstrators as pro-democracy protesters held a general strike on Monday.

Axar.az reports citing İndependent that tear gas was reported in the areas of Tin Shui Wai, Wong Tai Sin, and Tai Po, while in the town of Yuen Long, one person was reportedly injured after a car rammed through barricades set up by protesters in the semi-autonomous Chinese region.

Demonstrators had been attempting to block a road in Yuen Long on Monday morning as part of a general strike which has led to major traffic disruption and more than 100 flights being canceled.

Hong Kong’s embattled leader Carrie Lam maintained she has no plans to resign on Monday in response to the pro-democracy movement and warned the city was on “the verge of a very dangerous situation”.

Meanwhile, more than 100 flights have been canceled out of Hong Kong after a large number of airport employees called in sick, in what appeared to be participation in the strike.
