#Hong Kong - Thousands mark Tiananmen anniversary: Al Jazeera English
Published on 4 Jun 2016
Thousands of people have gathered in Hong Kong for the annual candlelit vigil, commemorating the Tiananmen Square crackdown. Hundreds of unarmed civilians were killed in 1989, when tanks and troops went into the square in Beijing to break up student-led, pro-democracy demonstrations. The Chinese government forbids any mention of the event, censoring media and the internet. Al Jazeera's Rob McBride reports from Hong Kong.
