Hong Kong airport reopened on Wednesday after fierce clashes overnight, but the turmoil may be far from over following reports that aviation authorities have obtained a court order to remove protesters from the terminal, setting up a possible showdown with demonstrators later in the day.

After the late-night scuffle that left several people injured, most of the protesters and police eventually cleared the terminal, and as of early Wednesday, the operation at the airport was back to normal, according to Al Jazeera's Hoda Abdelhamid, who was reporting from the airport.

"We've seen some of the employees come back to their counters, and some of the stranded passengers trying to figure out when they will be able to catch their flights," she said. "It's not clear whether the protesters will come back tomorrow."

Few protesters remained at the airport early on Wednesday.
