      Chinese soldiers on Thursday shot and killed a man trying to cross from North Korea into China when he resisted arrest, the official Xinhua news agency reported.

      "Around 3:55 a.m. Thursday, a person suspected of illegally crossing the border was shot dead while resisting arrest by Chinese border guards in the area near Nanping Town in Helong, Jilin Province" Xinhua quoted a Helong city statement as saying.

      It did not say whether the man was a soldier or a civilian.

      Chinese border guards have drastically stepped up vigilance after several North Korean Army deserters murdered Chinese civilians.
