’Butcher of Beijing’ dies aged 90

Former Chinese Premier Li Peng, known by many as the ’Butcher of Beijing’ for his role in the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown, has died. Peng’s declaration of martial law over parts of Beijing in the weeks before tanks and troops swept the square of protesters made him one of the most prominent faces of a crackdown.
