A 558-member detachment of Chinese troops returned to Beijing Sunday after completing an eight-month peace-keeping mission in Liberia.

The troops, who had been offering assistance in transportation, road and bridge construction, and medical care, had received the United Nations International Peace Medal.

The detachment from the Beijing Military Area Command of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) comprised a 240-member transport battalion, a 275-member engineering battalion, and a 43-member medical team.

This detachment is the sixth batch of Chinese peacekeeper in Liberia. The seventh detachment, also comprising 558 members, arrived in Liberia on April 18.
