Dozens of protesters from a pro-Beijing political party have demanded an apology from Washington over allegations by former National Security Agency (NASA) contractor Edward Snowden that the US hacked into Hong Kong computer systems.
Despite the rain in Hong Kong protesters gathered outside the US Embassy and delivering a letter through the bars of the Consulate General's base.
Snowden named Hong Kong's Chinese University, where its server exchange serves up to 80 percent of Hong Kong's domestic internet traffic, as a possible hacking target.
The British Government has urged airlines around the world not to let former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden get onto any flights bound for Britain.
A Home Office document, seen by the Associated Press, says airlines should not let Edward Snowden board any flights because: "The individual is highly likely to be refused entry to the UK."
British authorities say the document has been sent out to major international airlines. No warrants for Snowden's arrest have been issued.
The Associated Press reports that the whistleblower who leaked information about top secret US documents will not be allowed into Britain. AP says a request has been made to not allow him on any flights to the the UK.
