Journalists, firemen, buses, and red flags on Tiananmen are reflected in a glass door of the Great Hall of the People, where opening ceremony of the 18th Communist Party Congress is held, while a soldier dressed as an usher, seen through the glass, keeps watching in Beijing, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012. China's ruling Communist Party opened a congress Thursday to usher in a new group of younger leaders faced with the challenging tasks of righting a flagging economy and meeting public calls for better government.
