Beijing has deployed an anti-terrorism force of about 850,000 urban volunteers to patrol its streets following recent terrorist attacks across the country.

The capital adopted a similar security measure for the 2008 Olympics.

Local residents, including sanitary workers and retirees, have been recruited to work with public security officers and armed police to eliminate any possible danger.
