HONG KONG: Hundreds of protesters gathered outside Hong Kong’s international airport on Sunday, disrupting travel as they seek to focus global attention on their fight for greater democracy in a city facing its biggest political crisis in decades.

Trains to the airport were suspended and traffic was heavy after protesters urged the public to overwhelm road and rail links to one of the world’s busiest airports.

The gathering at the airport comes after police and protesters clashed overnight in some of the most intense violence since unrest erupted more than three months ago over concerns Beijing was planning to erode the autonomy granted to the city when it was handed back to China from Britain in 1997.
