Hong Kong: Police fired water cannon and tear gas at Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters massed outside the city's parliament on Saturday, as demonstrators defied a ban on rallying, the arrests of leading activists and rising threats from China, to take to the streets for a 13th straight weekend.
Passengers entered and left the terminal freely and planes were taking off and landing but trains were suspended and approach roads to the airport impassable as protesters erected barricades and overturned trolleys at the airport and in the nearby new town of Tung Chung.
Hong Kong protesters blockaded the city's worldwide airport on Sunday, capping off a weekend of chaos that involved some of the most intense clashes yet seen in the city's almost three-month-old political crisis.
At one point the airport express train service was suspended.
They threw gasoline bombs at police, who fired tear gas and water cannons.
Trains to the airport were halted and roads blocked. They then passed by Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam's residence along the way.
Three passers-by were briefly stopped and talked to by Vancouver police officers after they were seen tearing down signs put up by the Hong Kong supporters.
TV news footage showed riot police beating people with their batons inside train carriages at Prince Edward station and deploying pepper spray, with many passengers seen to be cowering and bleeding.
A small group of hardcore protesters had earlier surrounded the city's legislature, unleashing a barrage of rocks and petrol bombs at riot police, who responded with tear gas and water cannon.
The previous day's protests ended bitterly, with hundreds gathered in anger outside Mong Kok police station. Here are some protesters I recorded chanting at the police who were guarding the entrances.

Chandrayaan-2 gets closer to the moon
Around 2pm tomorrow (Monday), Vikram lander will get separated from the orbiter to continue its downward journey to land on Moon. The spacecraft has reached into an orbit that is 119 km from the lunar surface at its nearest point, and 127 km at the farthest.
Police sprayed demonstrators with blue-dyed water to make it easier to identify them later.
The government said some protesters threw objects at police.
The latest protests came on the fifth anniversary of China's decision to curtail democratic reforms and rule out universal suffrage in Hong Kong.
The standing committee of China's legislature ruled on August 31, 2014, that Hong Kong residents could elect their leader directly, but that the candidates would have to be approved by a nominating committee.
The statement was in response to the recent remarks by Chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs Eliot Engel and Congressman Michael McCaul on the violent radicals' acts in Hong Kong, which slandered the Chinese central government's policies for Hong Kong and pointed fingers at the law-based governance of the HKSAR government, the spokesperson said.
They also set fires in different places, vandalized public property, set up barricades, and damaged facilities at MTR stations such as platform screen doors.
Authorities are shutting down streets and subway service about 5 kilometers (3 miles) west near the Chinese government's office in Hong Kong.

"Violence directed at police on Saturday is no excuse for officers to go on the rampage elsewhere", it said.
Liu said that while Hong Kong police are attacking the protesters directly, China's Communist government is attacking their freedoms of speech, press and to peacefully assemble.
Hong Kong, a former British colony, was returned to China in 1997 under an agreement known as "one country, two systems", which allowed the city to retain a "high-degree of autonomy" for 50 years.
