From NYTimes.com:
For 20 years the negatives rested in Mr. (Terril) Jones’ belongings, following him across the world throughout his career as a journalist. He contacted The New York Times after reading the accounts of the other four photographers in Wednesday’s Lens blog.

Another pedals his bike, seemingly passive as the tanks rumble towards confrontation.

Here is the new photograph:
