Ap/Father of slain Tiananmen protester kills himself

29 May 2012versione stampabile

The father of a man killed in the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown has hanged himself in protest after two decades of failed attempts to seek government redress, a support group said Monday.
The group, known as the Tiananmen Mothers, said 73-year-old Ya Weilin’s body was found in an unused underground parking garage below his residential complex in Beijing. He was believed to have killed himself Friday.
