The Wider Image: More in Taiwan seek gun training as Ukraine war drives home China threat
Patches depicting Taiwan's flag and a symbol known as Saint Javelin of the Virgin Mary holding an anti-tank weapon and Ukraine's coat of arms, are pictured on one of Lin Ping-yu’s bags at his home in New Taipei City, Taiwan, May 31, 2022. Since the war in Ukraine started three months ago, bookings have nearly quadrupled for lessons in how to shoot airsoft guns, or low-power devices designed to shoot non-metallic projectiles. "More and more people are coming to take part," said Max Chiang, chief executive of Polar Light. REUTERS/Ann Wang SEARCH "WANG TAIWAN AIRSOFT GUNS" FOR THIS STORY.
