That's what China calls the track-suit-clad bodyguards for the Olympic torch. Sebastian Coe, chairman of the Olympic organizing committee, calls them "thugs" after he was pushed around by them in London. While many have sounded the alarm for their aggressive (and apparently unsactioned, at times) actions, the details on these guards are fuzzy: China says they're trained student volunteers, but won't say what school they attend; Parisian officials said they didn't know who they were; and event organizers said they didn't identify themselves on one route. One torchbearer called them "aggressive and robotic." China says they were selected to protect the torch because of their large stature and training.
