International performers cancel scheduled appearances in Hong Kong
Some cited security concerns amid a stand-off between demonstrators and the authorities.
At least three concerts by overseas performers have been cancelled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city’s airport to suspend operations for a second day.
K-pop star Kang Daniel and Scottish band Chvrches both announced on Tuesday that they are calling off upcoming events.
American singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin cancelled an upcoming concert late on Monday.
The airport protests are the latest escalation in a summer of demonstrations aimed at what many in Hong Kong see as an increasing erosion of their freedoms.
