Chinese honor guard  soldiers stand in position against the backdrop of Tiananmen square, where cannons fire salutes, in Beijing, China, Wednesday, June 3, 2009. Foreign journalists were barred from Beijing's Tiananmen Square on Wednesday amid heavy security on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the bloody crackdown on 1989 pro-democracy protests. The move comes after authorities blocked social networking and image sharing Web sites such as Twitter, and confined dissidents to their homes or forced them to leave Beijing. The efforts aim to prevent commemorations of the protests or remembrances of the hundreds, possibly thousands, who died in the military assault on the night of June 3-4 1989.
