Car Smashes Into Tiananmen Square

At least five people are dead and dozens more were injured Monday when a car slammed into Beijing's Tiananmen Square, the site of the 1989 riots. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying would not comment if it was a terrorist attack, given the symbolic history of the site. The car crashed directly into the main entrance of the Forbidden City, where there is a huge portrait of Mao Zedong. All three people in the car were killed.
