Microsoft says the “unexpected human error” caused the famous “Tank Man” image to disappear from its Bing search engine.

This is a famous picture of a Chinese protester standing alone in front of tanks in Tiananmen Square during the 1989 protests.

People who searched for the image on Friday in the search engine did not get any results, which led some to believe that the content was censored.

The term “tank man” was used to refer to a person whose identity has not been determined, and in June 1989 a picture was taken of him standing in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square.
