Taiwan’s Kuomintang Government Reopens Chiang Mausoleums

From AFP:

Thousands of tourists flocked to the mausoleums of Taiwan’s former Nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek and his son on Saturday as they reopened under the newly installed Kuomintang government.

TV pictures showed an unnamed Kuomintang military veteran weeping at the mausoleums, in the northern county of Taoyuan, which were closed under the former pro-independence government.

“I followed him to Taiwan from (China’s) Zhoushan islands more than 50 years ago,” the veteran told reporters.
