Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have blocked roads to the territory's airport, disrupting the operation of the major Asian transport hub.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
Trains to the airport were halted and roads blocked. Passengers had to walk to the terminal. Most flights operated as normal, but delays were reported.
Thousands of black-clad protesters then tried to enter the terminal building but were stopped by riot police.
On Saturday, police and protesters clashed during a banned rally.
Live warning shots were fired into the air and tear gas and water cannon used to disperse tens of thousands of protesters.
Images later showed riot police hitting people with batons and using pepper spray on a train in Hong Kong's metro.
