CHINA-MILITARY-SECURITY-POLITICS

Trainee bodyguards of the Genghis Security Academy receive orders from instructor Marco Borges (L) following an ambush exercise at an army training ground on the outskirts of Beijing on January 18, 2013. In sub-zero winter cold, trainees at an army base outside Beijing wake before dawn to practise martial arts and evasive driving, under the instruction of a Portuguese ex-special forces soldier. The roughly 40-strong group -- mostly with previous military experience -- are on a commercial training course to become elite bodyguards protecting Chinese firms as they seek ever more resources and contracts in some of the world's most unstable regions.
