Only passengers with travel documents will be allowed into the passenger terminal as anti-government activists prepare for three days of protests aimed at raising awareness among tourists arriving in the city, Hong Kong airport authority said on Friday.

A retired police chief who oversaw pro-democracy demonstrations in the former British colony in 2014 has been called in to help deal with protests that have plunged Hong Kong’s financial center into crisis, officials said today.

Hundreds of protesters at Hong Kong Airport

Hong Kong, which returned to Chinese rule in 1997, is suffering its worst political crisis in decades after two months of increasingly violent protests and poses the biggest challenge to Chinese President Xi Jinping since he took office in 2012.

The escalation of violence has prompted some countries, including the United States and Australia, to issue travel warnings.

Militants plan to pour into the airport on Friday afternoon and organize more protests over the weekend.
