Chinese troops send new troops to Hong Kong



HONG KONG – The Chinese military began sending a new group of troops to Hong Kong on Thursday, a move it described as a normal annual rotation of its garrison in the city, but one that has been closely watched over months of political turmoil.

"This rotation is an annual routine routine approved by the Central Military Commission," Lt. Col. Han Ti, spokesman for the Hong Kong garrison of the People's Liberation Army, said in a written statement.

The Xinhua State News Agency publishes photos of trucks carrying troops, armored personnel carriers and a ship entering the city under the guise of early morning darkness.

The Chinese army has about 6,000 to 10,000 troops in Hong Kong at any one time. The exact number is not public. The troops are based here after Hong Kong, a former British colony, returned to Chinese control in 1997.
