Heckler interrupts Hu in Hong Kong

Chinese President Hu Jintao had an unexpected interruption at a ceremony in Hong Kong Sunday. "Vindicate June 4th!" "Release democratic activists!" a member of the Hong Kong election committee shouted...referring to the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown of pro-democracy demonstrators. The heckler was immediately tackled to the ground and dragged out by security. Later he told Reuters he was acting according to his conscience and said things most Chinese citizens would have wanted to say themselves. Hu is in Hong Kong to inaugurate the city's new leader, who was appointed by a committee in Beijing. Although Hong Kong maintains a free-market status, it still can't elect it's own leaders. China has promised the direct election of Hong Kong's leader in 2017, but many are skeptical the poll will be truly democratic. Julie Noce, Reuters
