BEIJING - Lawmakers on Monday began reviewing draft legislation on the nation's first counterterrorism law.

The draft, tabled for a third reading at the ongoing bimonthly session of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, is China's latest attempt to address terrorism at home and help maintain world security.

A statement from the NPC Standing Committee cited a note from the legislature's Law Committee, which called the draft law already "quite mature" and suggested it be put forward for approval.
