Beijing, China — A Chinese travel agency has issued a warning to customers and customers to be on the lookout for a new travel agency that’s in the village of Wuhan.
“We have received a threat on social media,” said Lu Zheng, a senior director of China’s biggest travel agency, Tango.
A local Chinese news agency reported that the Wuhans main airport, Wuhang International Airport, had been blocked by a group of people with knives and baseball bats.
Lu said he had received calls from Wuhuan’s police and local officials and that he was working with authorities to track down the culprits.
He said his agency had sent a representative to Wuhanyan to talk to the locals about what happened and to get them to return to their normal lives.
This was not an act of terrorism,” Lu said.
Chinese authorities have been cracking down on anti-government protesters and protesters who oppose the Communist Party leadership in the wake of the 2011 crackdown on pro-democracy protests that swept through the country.
In the weeks since, police have used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd of up to a thousand protesters, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists.
