Protesters in Hong Kong have targeted the city’s transport system as part of the latest pro-democracy protests.

Around 200 flights have been cancelled after the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) was targeted ahead of the city-wide strike today (Monday, August 5).

Protesters have tried to prevent training leaving stations and, according to the BBC scuffles have broken out between commuters and activists.

After flights were cancelled Hong Kong authorities warned passengers about potential disruptions. Most of the cancelled services are operated by Cathay Pacific.

“The Airport Authority advises passengers to check with their airlines for the latest flight information, and to proceed to the airport only when their seats and flight time have been confirmed,” the airport said in a statement.

Wide spread protests are due to take place across Hong Kong today with 14,000 people from 20 sectors, including civil servants, expected to take part in the mass strike.
