Thousands Join Hong Kong Vigil for Tiananmen Square Anniversary
Tens of thousands gathered Sunday in Hong Kong's Victoria Park to mark the 28th anniversary of China's crackdown on pro-democracy protests.
Nearly three decades after Beijing sent tanks and troops to quell the 1989 student-led protests, Chinese authorities ban any public commemoration of the event on the mainland and have yet to release an official death toll. Estimates from human rights groups and witnesses range from several hundred to several thousand killed.
