ZHAO ZIYANG, FORMER CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY CHIEF, DEAD AT 85 Zhao Ziyang, the former Chinese Communist Party chief, died on Monday at the age of 85. Zhao was considered one of the standard-bearers of political and economic reform in China. He was against using force on the Tiananmen Square demonstrators and was removed from his position for this reason. Zhao rose to the post of China's premier and later party chief in the late 1980s, and was known for pushing political reforms. He was last seen in public in May 1989, when he visited hunger strikers at the Square. For years after his ouster, Zhao was kept under house arrest inside his closely guarded Beijing courtyard. Most Chinese will remember Zhao as a well-meaning, honest official, CNN's Beijing Bureau Chief Jaime Florcruz said, but as someone who was not good at political maneuvering.
