  Recently foreigners have made it a habit to climb the old city wall of Beijing. The commander of the  Metropolitan Gendarmerie, General Nieh Hsien-fan has set out to restore the respect for the city wall    and its gates. The wall was once  essential in keeping the city safe and should be respected as such.    Therefore theeral gen has ordered barriers on all the bridle paths to be made, and organized more      soldiers to patrol along the wall in order to prevent foreigners from getting on to it.
