Deng remembered

, August 18, 2014

Paramilitary policemen pose for photographs in front of a statue of Chinese late leader Deng Xiaoping during a ceremony to mark the upcoming 110th anniversary of the birth of Deng, in Guang'an, Sichuan province on August 18. Deng's birth anniversary will be marked on Friday, August 22. China's state television is airing a serial on late leader Deng, a rare portrayal of a top politician that state media have trumpeted as a sign the Communist Party is easing its grip on officials' sensitive legacies.
