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 Chiang Kai-shek 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.
