Taiwan reopens mausoleum of late dictator Chiang Kai-shek
TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Authorities have reopened the mausoleum of Taiwan's late dictator Chiang Kai-shek to commemorate his legacy.
The mausoleum in Taoyuan in northern Taiwan has been closed since last December, when the then-ruling Democratic Progressive Party said the democratic island should stop honoring a dictator.
Taoyuan Magistrate Eric Chu says he hopes controversy surrounding Chiang's legacy will end and Saturday's reopening of the mausoleum can help boost local tourism.
Chiang ruled Taiwan with an iron fist after his Nationalist Party was defeated by Mao Zedong's communists in China in a civil war and fled to the island in 1949.
The Nationalist's Ma Ying-jeou was elected Taiwanese president in March.
