Flowers are laid beside a portrait of China's former Communist Party chief Zhao Ziyang in Hong Kong, January 18, 2005. The family of purged Communist Party chief Zhao has decided to forgo a state funeral, sparing China's leaders a sensitive decision on whether to hold a high-profile ceremony that they fear could trigger protests. Chinese characters read 'Mourning' and 'Long Live Ziyang'. REUTERS/Bobby Yip BY
