Hong Kong International Airport — one of the busiest such facilities in the world — canceled all flights Monday after a swarm of pro-democracy demonstrators occupied the main terminal. Chinese authorities likened the protest to “terrorism.”

A crowd of thousands “seriously disrupted” operations at the airport, officials said in a statement. Only flights that were already boarding or had been cleared for landing were allowed to use the airport’s runways. All other flights were canceled.
