Family holds memorial for deposed Chinese leader – The Post


Family and friends of deposed Chinese Communist Party leader Zhao Ziyang gathered today to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his death.

Authorities kept a close watch on dissidents seeking to further his legacy of political openness.

Visitors streamed into Zhao’s Beijing home, where he spent the last 15 years under house arrest after being purged from his position for sympathising with pro- protesters in 1989.
