Anti Terror Squad

China is setting up special anti terror police squads in 36 cities, in readiness for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

This is partly in response to the terrorist threat, and also in response to the increased domestic unrest.

Land disputes are becoming more common and violent. Some 74,000 protests and riots occurred nationwide last year.

The authorites have no intention of allowing these land dipsutes to disrput the Games.
