The Chinese People's Armed Police (PAP) has granted the title of "Snow Leopard Commando" to a detachment that will participate in an anti-terror exercise in Russia next month.

At the title-granting ceremony on Wednesday, the Commando received its flag and emblem. Afterwards, Qu Liangfeng, the brigade leader, led his commandoes, wearing camouflage, helmet and boot, to swear to the nation and the people.

The Snow Leopard Commando, namely the 13th Special Brigade of the PAP Beijing Corps, is scheduled to join in the Cooperation 2007 Joint Exercise with Russia's domestic security force in early September.

The brigade, a first-class anti-terror force guarding China's national capital, was established in December of 2002. So far, it has handled over 90 major urgent cases and took part in a dozen military drills and performances.

As an international practice, an anti-terror commando would have its unique name, according to the PAP Headquarters.
