Chinese paramilitary forces exercise near Hong Kong

Hundreds of members of China's People's Armed Police conducted exercises on Thursday at a sports stadium in Shenzhen, as the U.S. State Department expressed concern that they could be deployed across the border in Hong Kong to break up protests wracking the city.

Chinese paramilitary forces exercise near Hong Kong

Western and Asian diplomats in Hong Kong have however said Beijing has little appetite for rolling the PAP or the People's Liberation Army onto Hong Kong's streets.

On Thursday (August 15) men in fatigues could be seen in a stadium and shouts and whistles could be heard by a Reuters journalist.

The stadium is next to a retail complex and shoppers were milling around the area, although the entrances to the stadium were closed.

Parking spaces at the stadium were filled with more than 100 dark-painted paramilitary vehicles, including troop trucks, armored personnel carriers, buses and jeeps.

At least three were armored wheel-loaders, and two vehicles carried water cannons.
