China paramilitary team, 'thugs' to some, protects Olympic flame

BEIJING (AP) - They wear
bright blue tracksuits and Beijing
Olympic organizers call them
"flame attendants." But a mili-
tary bearing hints at their true
pedigree: paramilitary police sent
by Beijing to guard the Olympic
flame during its journey around
the world.
Torchbearers have criticized

the security detail for aggressive
behavior, and a top London Olym-
pics official simply called them
"thugs."
"They were barking orders at
me, like 'Run! 'Stop! This! That!'
and I was like, 'Oh my gosh, who
are these people?"' former televi-
sion host Konnie Huq told British
Broadcasting Corp. radio about

her encounter with the men in
blue during London's leg of the
relay Sunday.
So far, the "29th Olympic
Games Torch Relay Flame Protec-
tion Unit" - as the squad is offi-
cially known - has kept the flame
from being seized during chaotic,
protest-filled runs through Paris
and London.

Its mettle is likely to be further
tested Wednesday in San Fran-
cisco, where activists protest-
ing China's crackdown in Tibet
and its human rights record have
promised widespread demonstra-
tions.
Officially, Beijing has said only
that the unit's mission was to
guard the flame, in keeping with

practices of past Olympic games.
Members were picked from
special police units of the People's
Armed Police, China's internal
security force. The requirements
for the job: to be "tall, handsome,
mighty, in exceptional physical
condition similar to that of pro-
fessional athletes," the state-run
China News Service said.
