DHAKA: Thousands of angry passengers were stranded after heavy fog delayed flights at a Chinese airport, as the country was shivered through its coldest weather in almost three decades.
Ten thousand passengers were stuck in Changshui International Airport in the southern Chinese city of Kunming Saturday morning after thick fog grounded more than 280 flights.
State-run Xinhua news agency said, reports The Straits Times.
Angry passengers stranded at the airport for more than a day struggled with airline staff, damaging computer equipment belonging to an airline, while police broke up scuffles, according to a photographer present at the scene late on Friday.
`The passengers were really furious, they kept going to the service desk to ask for information, but didn`t get any answers,` the photographer said.
