China tightens Tiananmen security

 39931131 Tiananmen Ap203 From BBC NEWS: “A thousand policemen are to be deployed every morning on Beijing’s to escort visitors to the flag-raising ceremony.

The new rules may be designed to prevent any dawn protests on the square, scene of a bloody pro-democracy crackdown in 1989.

The move comes amid worries over the health of ex-leader Zhao Ziyang, who has spent 15 years under house arrest.”
