Hong Kong protesters apologize for airport shutdown

Posted online

A group of Hong Kong protestors issued an apology after the territory's international airport was closed for two days amid sometimes violent protests.

"It is not our intention to cause delays to your travels and we do not want to cause inconvenience to you," the group said. "We ask for your understanding and forgiveness as young people in Hong Kong continue to fight for freedom and democracy."

Some of the protestors held signs that said "Sorry! We don't have other choice" and "Sorry for inconvenience, HK is sick."

The airport is now trying to work through a backlog of more than 200 flights as normal service has resumed.
