Chinese national flag flew at half-mast on Tian'anmen Square in Beijing on Thursday, expressing the incomparable esteem and profound mourning for Comrade Jiang Zemin.
Jiang Zemin passed away due to leukemia and multiple organ failure in Shanghai on Wednesday. He was 96 years old. Jiang saw China through history-making changes including a revival of market-oriented reforms, the return of Hong Kong from British rule in 1997 and Beijing’s entry into the World Trade Organization in 2001.
