A team of 110 Chinese policemen left Beijing on Thursday for a one-year United Nations peacekeeping mission in Liberia.

Together with 30 Chinese policemen who arrived in Liberia in February, they will make up the fourth Chinese peacekeeping police riot squad sent on tour since Sept. 2013.

The riot police squad is tasked with maintaining security and order in the capital city, Monrovia, by patrolling, handling emergencies and guarding important figures.

The team, formed principally of border police from east China's Zhejiang Province, have been trained in international law, weaponry application, bodyguarding and English.
