Microsoft’s search engine Bing is not displaying image results for the infamous “tank man” photo of a Chinese protestor on Friday during the anniversary for the Tiananmen Square massacre. Microsoft has attributed the ongoing issue to “accidental human error” amid claims of possible censorship, according to a report from Reuters.

Microsoft is “actively working to resolve this,” a spokesperson told the publication. 

As of 3:30 p.m. PT, Bing continues not showing any Tiananmen Square-related image search results for “tank man” — just generic photos and images of tanks. By comparison, Google is returning results of the famous image.

Microsoft didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
