SUVA, Fiji (AP) - Fiji's military said it would secure parts of the capital for three hours overnight Wednesday as part of a training exercise designed to prepare for foreign troops entering the coup-plagued nation.
The announcement of the exercise appeared to be a show of force by the military, whose leader held talks with Fiji's elected leader earlier Wednesday to try to avert a coup that Australia and other regional neighbors have said may be imminent.
``The exercise will entail securing strategic areas within the greater Suva Area and also the firing of illumination rounds into the sea,'' the military said in a statement. ``The exercise is in anticipation of any foreign intervention and the RFMF (Royal Fiji Military Forces) is taking all precautionary measures.
The exercise would take place between midnight Wednesday and 3 a.m. Thursday, it said.
