Chinese reform politician Wan Li dies
Wan Li, a Chinese politician known for his reform policies, has died at the age of 98, state media said.
The state-run digital publication The Paper, citing Wan's son, said he died in Beijing on Wednesday. State broadcaster CCTV also reported Wan's death.
Wan was the chairman of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature, in 1989 when students gathered in Beijing's Tiananmen Square for prodemocracy demonstrations. Wan's stance on the protests was never made clear, though he never openly opposed the bloody military crackdown that ended them.
