CHINA - Guarding the Games
Without much public fuss, China has established a special task force, designed to guard the Olympic Games 2008. After a short period of plannings, that anti-terror brigade actually came into being between 2005 and 2007. It is now reported to be fully operational. On March 1, a first report on the new Chinese task force reached Europe and was finally confirmed, on March 24, by the Chinese news agency XINHUA. Now, some more weeks later, that subject seems to be broadly discussed by other Chinese media as well while reports in English and French are still missing.
A nice example for interesting news "speeding around the world". By the way, I found the March 1 article in a German supermarket, owned by some Vietnamese and where they use Chinese papers to wrap up dried fish and vegetables. That about getting informed.....
