Beijing put additional police on the street and detained government critics Tuesday as part of a security crackdown on the eve of the 25th anniversary of the crushing of pro-democracy protests centered on the capital's Tiananmen Square.Authorities regularly tighten security ahead of June 4, but this year's suppression has notably harsher than in past.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.Thousands marched through the city on Sunday in remembrance of the crackdown, and organizers said they expected about 150,000 people to join in a candlelight vigil in a city park Wednesday.
