HONG KONG -- Flights from Hong Kong's airport were canceled on Monday afternoon on the fourth day of protests in the main terminal building, a move that came after demonstrations in the territory turned increasingly violent over the weekend.

A statement issued by Airport Authorities at 3:30 p.m. local time said all departure flights had been canceled for the rest of the day, except those for which the check-in process had been completed.
