    Tiananmen Square death toll ‘10,000’
    The envoy wrote: “Students understood they were given one hour to leave square but after five minutes APCs attacked.

    “Students linked arms but were mown down including soldiers. APCs then ran over bodies time and time again to make ‘pie’ and remains collected by bulldozer. Remains incinerated and then hosed down drains.

    “Four wounded girl students begged for their lives but were bayoneted.”

    Mr Donald added that “some members of the State Council considered that civil war is imminent”.

    The political protest had lasted seven weeks before the army was sent in and it was the largest such demonstration in Communist China’s history.

    The killings remain highly sensitive in China.
