Nearly 4 million used airport last month The number of passengers passing through the airport reached 3.9 million last month, a 7 per cent increase on February of last year. Cargo throughput increased 5 per cent on the same period last year. The chief executive officer of the Airport Authority, Stanley Hui Hon-chung, said the increase was attributed to the buoyant local economy. He said it was a good start to the year but warned that the months ahead would be challenging if the US economy kept slowing. Dongguan property owners rally About 60 Hongkongers who own property in Dongguan marched to police headquarters in Admiralty. They say 1,000 owners paid 3 to 6 per cent of the property price for a 'property licence' in 1995 but had not received the document. Mainland authorities are now chasing the owners, saying the licence fee has not been paid. The protesters are demanding the developer give them the licence.
