HONG KONG (AP) - A pro-china magazine said that Beijing plans to station as many
as 10,000 troops in Hong Kong after the British colony reverts to China in 1997.
Mirror magazine, which has close connections with Beijing, said in its May issue
that one division of specially trained People's Liberation Army troops would garrison
Hong Kong after 1997. It said part of the garrison would cross overland from China
on July 1, 1997, for the handover of power from Britain.
