Fiji Military exercise to take control of Fiji capital- Wednesday night.

Fiji's military says it will take over the greater Suva area in an exercise tonight, designed to train the troops to repel any foreign intervention.

A statement signed by Major Neumi Leweni said the exercise would start at midnight and run until 3am.

Troops would secure strategic areas within the greater Suva area. As well, illumination rounds would be fired into the sea near Nukulau, Makuluva and the entrance to Suva harbour.

The statement said the public should be careful when travelling close to these areas but there was no cause for alarm. Troops will be in full battle dress.

"The exercise is in anticipation of any foreign intervention and the RFMF is taking all precautionary measures," the statement said.

Meanwhile, Fiji crisis talks in NZ end after 1.5 hours with no outcome.
