A photo of China’s new first lady Peng Liyuan singing to troops following the 1989 massacre in Tiananmen Square is causing a stir on the internet.
The image shows MsÂ Peng wearing a green military uniform, her windswept hair tied back in a ponytail as she sings to helmeted and rifle-bearing troops seated in rows.
The photo was taken after the military crushed pro-democracy demonstrations in Beijing, killing hundreds, possibly thousands, of people on June 3 and 4, 1989.
Many Chinese are still unaware that the massacre happened.
