HONG KONG -- What was supposed to be a permanent museum in Hong Kong commemorating the crackdown on unarmed students and civilians in Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989, was closed down on Monday, only two years after it opened. The premature closure came about following a prolonged lawsuit instigated by the owner of the building in which the exhibition was housed. However, counting on a new round of financial and popular support, the museum's organizers are confident it will make a stronger comeback in a new home within a year.
