A Chinese-born Australian artist and former protester in China's 1989 pro-democracy movement was taken away by Chinese authorities shortly after a profile of him appeared in the Financial Times newspaper in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the military clampdown on the student protest centered around Beijing's Tiananmen Square.This year's suppression has been harsher than in previous years, as police round up activists who had received no more than warnings in the past.Police also have cautioned foreign journalists not to cover any sensitive issues in the run up to the anniversary, or face "serious consequences".A French broadcaster said its journalists were interrogated for six hours by Beijing police when they were found interviewing people on the street about the events 25 years ago.
