Mao Zedong’s last surviving son dies.
Mao Anqing died Friday, the China News Service said, without citing a cause of death. He had no role in government, suffered from psychiatric problems and is believed to have spent much of his adult life in mental hospitals.
Born in 1923, Mao Anqing was the second son of Mao and his first wife, Yang Kaihui, while they were activists. Yang was executed in 1930 by the then-ruling Nationalist government.
