GUANGZHOU -- A new group of 200 Chinese peacekeepers are heading for Lebanon for a UN peace-keeping mission.

A send-off ceremony was held on Sunday. Members of the group are mainly from an engineering troop but also include special police, medical staff and translators.

Over 12 months, the peacekeepers will be stationed in southern Lebanon and be tasked with repairing roads, project maintenance and humanitarian rescue.

China has sent 17 groups of peacekeepers to Lebanon.
