China Holds Anti-Terror Drill after Mumbai Attacks

Members of the Beijing Special Armed Police Unit held an anti-terror drill after the Mumbai attacks. From Xinhua, via China Daily:

Armed police conducted an anti-terror drill at a hotel in Beijing on Saturday to boost its response capabilities against Mumbai-style militant attacks.

The scenario was that a group of terrorists rocked the city with a series of explosions and kidnapped hostages at the hotel.

Members of the Beijing Special Armed Police Unit (BSAPU) used a helicopter and ropes to get 10 meters down to the ground within two seconds. They then shot targets of swaying eggs 15 meters away within 1.5 seconds to practice killing terrorists. After breaking through windows, police were able to rescue hostages.
