Hong Kong rail system faces delays as protesters target trains

In Hong Kong, pro-democracy protesters threw train travel this morning into chaos, kicking off another day of potential turmoil after a weekend featuring some of the worst violence in three months of anti-government protests. 

Protesters dressed in their signature black stood at doorways of trains, stopping them from closing, at a series of stations on the underground system, causing major delays on the network. The global financial hub is in the midst of an unprecedented crisis as a largely leaderless movement has drawn millions on to the streets to protest over alleged an erosion of freedoms and increasing interference in their affairs by Beijing.
