Fallen peacekeepers laid to rest

Yesterday, a funeral was held for the eight Chinese police officers who lost their lives in Haiti, where they were serving in the UN mission when the earthquake struck.

As it has for the past three days, the story dominated today’s front pages, but there was more variety in presentation compared to the previous days.

The Chengdu Evening News presented a photo of the motorcade as it passed through Tiananmen Square on its way to the Babaoshan cemetary. Two different views of the procession on foot were found on the cover of Yunnan’s New Life Post and the Beijing Times.

The Beijing Evening News ran a photo of the coffins lying in the Babaoshan memorial hall over the text of “On the Road” (在路上), a song made famous by pop star Liu Huan (and most recently heard as the theme song to the “Win in China” reality show).
