FILE - This March 7, 1990 file photo shows former Beijing Mayor Chen Xitong in Beijing, China. Chen, who backed the military crackdown on the Tiananmen Square democratic movement during his term but later expressed regret, died Sunday, June 2, 2013 at the age of 82, two days before the 24th anniversary of the bloody quelling of the student-led movement, according to media reports and a family friend. At the height of his career, Chen was one of China's most powerful men, but an anticorruption campaign brought about his spectacular downfall. (AP Photo/Mark Avery, File) less
