Former Chinese President Jiang Zemin has died at the age of 96. Jiang became president in 1993 and is credited with mending China’s ties with the international community and overseeing its economic boom following the country’s isolation after the bloody 1989 crackdown on the Tiananmen Square protests. Jiang’s passing comes amid a series of rare public protests against the government, triggered by Beijing’s stringent COVID-19 policies.
