Secret Chinese "thugs"
There's a lengthly article in the Daily Mail describing the challenges faced by the bearers of the Olympic torch as they tried to wind their way through ceremonial routes in London and Paris. The article talks about mysterious and sinister Chinese men in blue tracksuits who came out of nowhere and scuffled aggressively with both police and protesters in their attempts to keep the torch aloft and lit. The article quotes Lord Coe, the head of London's 2012 Olympic games, referring to these men as "thugs", and suggests that they are Chinese special forces, sent without notification to official security to combat the protesters. Scary portent of things to come. LINK
