FRANKFURT, May 18: German activists glued themselves to a runway at Munich airport Saturday and caused dozens of flights to be cancelled, in their latest action aimed at pushing authorities to tackle climate change.
The activists from the Last Generation environmental protest group forced their way into Germanys second-busiest airport by cutting through a fence in the early hours, an airport spokesman said.
Flights were suspended, leading to the cancellation of 61 take-offs and landings, he said.

The action came to an end with the arrest of eight climate activists, police told the local public broadcaster.    —AFP
