A bronze statue of  Sun Yat-sen which had stood in a park for 50 years in the southern city of Tainan, has been toppled by a  radical Taiwanese independence group.

The Kuomintang (KMT) party pulled down the statue of the founding father of the nationalist republic who fled from the Chinese mainland to the island more than six decades ago.

The park has long been a flashpoint between nationalist groups and supporters of the Kuomintang (KMT) party, who view Sun and fellow nationalist leader Chiang Kai-shek with reverence but are loathed by radical independence groups.

The “toppling” is seen as a show of support for the victim of the February 28th 1947 when riots erupted across the island after a KMT inspector beat a female vendor in Taipei for selling untaxed cigarettes.
