HONG KONG, May 1 — Actress and activist Mia Farrow was allowed into Hong Kong on Thursday, a day before the Olympic torch winds through a territory where most citizens support the Beijing Olympics and where officials have denied entry to protesters hoping to exploit the controversial relay.

Farrow is expected to speak out at a news conference Friday against China, a major trading partner with Sudan, for not doing more to stop atrocities in the western Sudanese region of Darfur. Her entry into the former British colony, which is supposed to have more autonomy than the mainland under a “one country, two systems” formula, was closely watched by free speech advocates and other critics of Chinese policy.
