Chinese military sends new troops to Hong Kong



HONG KONG – The Chinese military began dispatching a new force group to Hong Kong on Thursday. This was described as a normal annual change of occupation in the city, but was closely monitored due to months of political unrest.

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

The Xinhua State News Agency released photos of trucks carrying troops, armored personnel transports, and a ship under cover of the early morning darkness into the city.

The Chinese military has about 6,000 to 10,000 soldiers in Hong Kong. The exact number is not public. The troops are stationed here since Hong Kong, a former British colony, came under Chinese control again in 1997.
