China launches martyrs web link

Breaking News

The link is to encourage people to show respect to those who died in the communist revolution, it said.

The new web link comes ahead of the annual Qingming Festival when Chinese traditionally honour their ancestors.

Also known as Chingming, or tomb-sweeping Day, this falls on 4 April this year.

The online memorial was initiated by the Central Civilisation Office of the Communist Party of China on 26 March and will remain "live" until 14 April.
