Hong Kong (CNN) — Almost 200 flights were canceled to and from Hong Kong Monday, as thousands of pro-democracy protesters shut down one of the busiest airports in Asia following violent clashes with police over the weekend.

Hundreds of passengers were left stranded after all departing flights and more than 70 arriving flights were canceled in the early evening, amid chaotic scenes inside the airport as thousands of demonstrators descended on the main terminal.

The article goes on to state the following:

The abrupt decision by authorities to suspend flights was interpreted by protesters as a signal that riot police would soon attempt to clear the airport. Fearing a repeat of the violence that has characterized recent demonstrations, the majority of protesters began to leave, with many choosing to walk home along the highway.

“All outbound flights are canceled from Hong Kong as thousands of protesters occupy the airport. It follows a public outcry over the heavy-handed police response to anti-government rallies over the weekend,” Al Jazeera English tweeted.
