Statue seized in Hong Kong

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

HONG Kong po­lice seized a sec­ond statue ded­i­cated to vic­tims of the 1989 Tianan­men Square crack­down in what crit­ics called an at­tack on free­dom of ex­pres­sion in the semi­au­tonomous Chi­nese ter­ri­tory. The Chi­nese mil­i­tary’s sup­pres­sion of pro-democ­racy stu­dent protests in June 1989, which killed at least hun­dreds, is off-lim­its on the main­land, but it is openly mourned and crit­i­cised in Hong Kong.
