    TANKS have rolled onto the streets of China as Xi Jinping orders a clampdown on the ‘White Paper’ anti-lockdown protests.

    Their appearance is a chilling echo of the Tiananmen Square massacre when troops were used to brutally suppress demonstrations – prompting one man’s iconic protest by standing in front of a tank.

    Footage of the tanks has been widely shared after several days of historic protests in China, in which demonstrators waved blank sheets of white paper in symbolic protest against censorship.

    A column of tanks was spotted in the eastern city of Xuzhou, leading to fears they could be heading to put down the protests.
