  • Description

    In Taiwan on Tuesday (31 October) crowds of people assembled in front of Generalissimo Chiang-kai Shek's house in Taipei. The occasion was the Taiwanese leader's 86th birthday.

    In other parts of the country, small gatherings were celebrating the occasion with Taiwan's Armed Forces joining in parades and aircraft fly-pasts.

    The 86-year-old leader failed to appear to thank the crowd, adding further speculation that he is gravely ill.

    Generalissimo Chiang also failed to appear for the October Double tenth celebrations earlier this month.
