Zhao Ziyang has passed away

This morning I heard on the Dutch news (internet radio) that the former
President of China, Zhao Ziyang, died. In ‘89 he was replaced by Jiang Zemin and put under house
arrest because of his soft stance on the student protests.

Chinaherald has
collected a good set of links about his death. It will be interesting
to see and read how the Chinese media will be reporting about this,
either today or later.
