Tiananmen Square memorial museum to open in Hong Kong – video

The first permanent museum dedicated to the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre is planned to open on 4 June. Organisers have created a replica of the Goddess of Democracy statue built by Chinese demonstrators in the square. But the organisers say there is pressure on them to shut down the museum before the protest's 25th anniversary
