Violent clashes broke out at Hong Kong airport on Tuesday evening as riot police arrived to disperse anti-extradition protesters.

Hong Kong airport protests took a violent turn when police showed up to disperse the crowds blocking the international airport terminals. Demonstrators initially appeared to force the airport staff outside, later barricading the airport road with baggage carts and throwing plastic bottles at police vehicles when scuffles broke out.

One police officer was beaten by demonstrators and fell to the floor before being helped to their feet by fellow officers. The officer in question pulled out a gun during the skirmish and pointed it at the protesters but no shots were fired.
