BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese militia staged a two-day weekend exercise off the southeastern coast, following up on drills by the People's Liberation
Army this month amid simmering tensions with arch-foe Taiwan, state media said on Monday.
About 3,000 Chinese officers, men, militia and paramilitary police took part in the two-day exercises off Fujian province that ended on Sunday and
which involved militia boats providing front-line support at sea, the online edition of the official Xinhua news agency said.
