Scene from a Canadian embassy staff quarter at noon on 4 June 1989, three kilometres east of Tiananmen Square and several hours after the massacre. Soldiers are seated, waiting for orders beside their disabled truck and several corpses covered by coats. A little later, the soldiers departed and the bystanders set the truck ablaze. This same evening, the Canadians were evacuated after shooting erupted in the area. Source: John Morrison, an officer at the Canadian Embassy in Beijing.
