Chinese paramilitary forces exercise near Hong Kong border

Paramilitary soldiers could be seen marching and holding anti-riot drills outside of the Shenzhen Bay Sports Centre.

Hundreds of armoured vehicles remained parked on surrounding streets.

The Shenzhen stadium sits across the water from Hong Kong's rural hinterland, near a bridge straddling the border.

Chinese state media have made several mentions of exercises in Shenzhen.

The U.S. State Department expressed concern on Wednesday (August 14) that the People's Armed Police could be deployed across the border in Hong Kong to break up protests wracking the city.
