In Hong Kong on Monday _ the only place in China where a large, public commemoration is allowed _ tens of thousands gathered to mourn the dead at a candlelight vigil. In Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, there were no immediate reports of protests and only tourists gathered to watch a daily flag-raising ceremony amid tight security.
Ding, co-founder of the Tiananmen Mothers, a group that represents families of those who died, said police did not try to stop her Sunday night, though plainclothes agents may have been observing the vigil.
