(CNN)Singapore is scrambling to recover nine armored troop carriers that have been impounded in Hong Kong for almost a week after they were used in a military training exercise in Taiwan.

Singapore's Ministry of Defence said the shipment of Terrex infantry carriers had been delayed on November 23 during a routine inspection by Hong Kong Customs. Local media reports have suggested the seizure was at Beijing's request.

    It certainly earned Singapore a unusual public reprimand from China.
