A visitor looks at a vintage Chinese missile on display in Beijing
December 27, 2001. The China-backed Wen Wei Po newspaper in Hong Kong
cited military sources on Wednesday saying China will raise its
military spending next year, up from this year's officially declared
141 billion yuan ($17.2 billion). China's military spending has grown
over the past several years as Beijing modernises its armed forces.
