The week's news at a glance.
A prominent Chinese military doctor said China should admit it was wrong to fire on anti-corruption protesters in Tiananmen Square, in 1989. In a letter to the communist legislature last month, Dr. Jiang Yanyong recommended that the student movement of 1989 be reappraised as a patriotic movement. Jiang said that the vast majority of people believed the massacre of hundreds of peaceful protesters was absolutely wrong. Last year, Jiang became a national folk hero when he exposed Chinas coverup of the SARS epidemic.
