File photo of a man standing in front of a convoy of tanks in the Avenue of Eternal Peace in Tiananmen Square in Beijing

L’agence de presse britannique Reuters (équivalent de notre AFP) a sorti des archives 56 photos qui ont marqué les 30 dernières années de son existence. Des clichés qui pour certains sont connus dans le monde entier, comme celui de la place Tian’anmen (ci-dessus), et des dizaines d’autres photos qui reviennent sur 30 ans d’histoire. Une série, dont quelques photos assez chocs, qui nous permet un petit retour en arrière intéressant, entre histoire politique, catastrophes naturelles et conflits mondiaux.
