China has been boosting forces along its 880-mile border with North Korea, in fear of a regional crisis – including the remote possibility of an American attack, according to a published report on Monday.

The Wall Street Journal cited military and government websites and interviews with experts who have been following Beijing’s preparations, in light of escalating tensions between Pyongyang and Washington.

In recent months, China has been more aggressive in keeping an eye on the border with drones, the paper reported.

China has also moved new weaponry to the region and staged drills with special forces, airborne troops and infantry units, according to the WSJ.
