Flight operations resumed at Hong Kong’s airport Wednesday morning after two days of disruptions marked by outbursts of violence. 
The airport had closed check-in for remaining flights late Tuesday afternoon as protesters swarmed the terminal and blocked access to immigration for departing passengers.
While several dozen protesters camped out in the airport arrival area overnight, check-in counters were open and flights appeared to be operating normally as of Wednesday morning. 
Most of the protesters left on Tuesday evening after officers armed with pepper spray and swinging batons tried to enter the terminal, fighting with demonstrators who barricaded entrances with luggage carts. Riot police clashed briefly with the demonstrators.

About three dozen protesters remained camped in the airport’s arrivals area, a day after a mass demonstration and frenzied mob violence forced more than 100 flight cancelations. But check-in counters were open and flights appeared to be operating normally.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
