China’s Hong Kong affairs office condemned on Wednesday, August 14th, the protests at Hong Kong’s airport calling them “near-terrorist acts”, urging the authorities to punish protesters attempting to storm the airport, reported Reuters.  

The office criticized the attack against a reporter from China’s Global Times newspaper and a traveler at the airport.

Hong Kong's airport resumed operations on Wednesday, rescheduling hundreds of flights that had been disrupted over the past two days as protesters clashed with riot police.
