China says troops to undergo anti-terrorism training for Olympics

China plans to boost anti-terrorism training for its military ahead of this summer's Olympic Games, state media said Monday. The troops will focus on biochemical and nuclear threats, and emergency rescue operations, according to the official Xinhua News Agency. China believes terrorism is the biggest threat facing next year's Olympic Games and has called for closer international cooperation to prevent possible attacks. While not a traditional target of international terrorism, Beijing faces a growing long-term threat from Islamic separatists among the Uighur population in western China's Xinjiang region.
