China to hold
but don't look
BEIJING---China will hold a massive military parade
through the heart of its capital, but ordinary folks
can t watch.
Authorities obsessed with security and leery of
any possible hitches will virtually shut down central
Beijing today, keeping most people out of eyeshot
for the parade commemorating the defeat of Japan
in World War II. Residents who live along the parade
route have received notices ordering them to stay off
balconies, keep windows shut, invite no guests and---
at some buildings---snap no pictures.
"I am eager to watch the parade, but I understand
it's impossible for everyone to have the chance to
see it," said a Beijing lawyer who identified himself
only by his surname, Yao. "I think watching the live
broadcast will be a good alternative."
The neighbourhoods around Tiananmen Square,
the main venue where President Xi Jinping will inspect
the troops with foreign dignitaries, will be under
curfew, and Beijing has mobilised 850,000 neigh-
bourhood watchers to report anything even slightly
out of the ordinary.
City roads will be closed, public bus service sus-
pended and many subway stops sealed, while cordon
tape will keep members of the public away from the
parade. Authorities also are shutting down office
buildings, shops, restaurants and even hospitals along
the route for at least 24 hours. Some buildings are
staying shut for three days.
As is customary for major international events in
the capital, authorities have placed restrictions on
factories and traffic to ensure that skies are clear of
Beijing's frequent smog on parade day.
Many residents are fleeing the capital, including
Zhang Yu, a 27-year-old media company employee
heading to the northeastern seaside town of Dalian.
"The government is completely oblivious to the
need for Beijing residents to have a normal life, and
only cares about building its image," Zhang said.
Boko Haram on
horseback kill 26
MAIDUGURI---Twenty- six people were killed in
Nigeria s northeastern Borno state by attackers on
horseback believed to be rebels of the Islamic
extremist group Boko Haram, witnesses said.
Ali Abdulqasim said his home village of Kolori and
the neighbouring village of Baana-imam were attacked
"I ran and hid atop a mango tree outside our village,
from where I watched secretly how they chased the
scampering villagers and shoot at them," Abdulqasim
He spent the night in the tree and when he came
down in the morning he saw many dead bodies, he
said. "I counted almost a dozen (corpses), mostly
the elderly and children," he said.
The death toll was 26, said Abbas Gava, a
spokesman for a civilian defense group.
Boko Haram's six-year-old uprising has caused
the deaths of an estimated 20,000 people.
More than 1,000 people have been killed since
President Muhammadu Buhari was elected in March
with a pledge to wipe out the militants. Nearly 2
million have been driven from their homes by the
