Xinhua on Zhao Ziyang

A tight-lipped statement from Xinhua about reformist politician Zhao Ziyang who has been under house arrest since 1989:

Physical condition of Zhao Ziyang stabilizes
Zhao Ziyang has lately suffered from an illness recurrence and his physical condition has stabilized after careful treatment, Xinhua learned Sunday afternoon.

Zhao is still receiving continued careful treatment at the moment.

That's all. The statement is here. Wikipedia has an entry on Zhao here.

UPDATE: Xinhua: Comrade Zhao Ziyang passes away.
