China tightens security at Tiananmen Square

The Chinese government have announced tightened security in and around Tiananmen Square. Items prohibited include “guns, explosives, knives and “other items that affect social order and public safety.” Checking of bags at entrances to the square have been in place for some time, but it is only this week that the government has announced the new measures.

Last month China announced that they wouldn’t allow live broadcasting from Tiananmen Square during the Olympics.
