Jiang Zemin, former Chinese president burial announced

The former Chinese head of state and Communist Party leader, Jiang Zemin will be laid to rest on Dec. 6.

The body of “comrade’’ Jiang Zemin was flown to Beijing on Thursday and his coffin was received at the airport by President Xi Jinping and other top state officials, the state news agency Xinhua reported.

Jiang died on Nov. 30, at the age of 96 following weeks of rumours about his health. A three-minute silence will be observed nationwide on the day of the funeral.

Jiang, the former mayor of Shanghai, came to power in the wake of the bloody 1989 crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.
