TO GO WITH AFP STORY 'China-military-security-politics,FEATURE' by Tom Hancock Assault rifles lie at the feet of bodyguard trainees at the Genghis Security Academy in Beijing on January 17, 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.
