Beijing security tight on eve of Tiananmen anniversary

On June 4, 1989, Associated Press photographer Jeff Widener snapped the Tank Man photo during the crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Beijings Tiananmen Square which became one of the most iconic photos of the 21st century. The photographer, on a visit to Hong Kong, talks about some of the lesser-known images he took during the tumultuous period.

BEIJING has put additional police on the street and detained government critics as part of a security crackdown on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the crushing of pro-democracy protests centred on the capital's Tiananmen Square.
