New Delhi, Oct 11 (ANI): China has activated 100 police checkpoints on the roads and waterways to host city Guangzhou to form a security firewall, with one month to go before the opening of the 2010 Asian Games.
A total of 132 checkpoints, scattered in south China's Guangdong Province and five neighboring regions, are responsible for examining people, vehicles and articles in order to ensure the smooth running of the 16th Asian Games and the Asian Para Games.
An unnamed official with the Ministry of Public Security said that the security checks would be conducted in a less disturbing way to avoid traffic jams and other inconveniences.
The ministry also instructed police departments across the country to put more effort into solving social conflicts and cracking down on gun-related crimes and violence," Xinhua reports.
As the ministry deployed more personnel for street patrols, it urged fire and traffic departments to strengthen management to prevent major fire and road accidents.
The 2010 Asian Games is scheduled to open on November 12. (ANI)
