Chinese Navy Completes Anti-Terror Drill

Friday, April 07, 2006
The Chinese Navy held its first anti-terror drill in the port city of Qingdao to test its capabilities in dealing with possible terrorist attacks using chemical weapons during the sailing events of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Most events will be held here apart from the sailing competitions in Qingdao, Shandong Province and the equestrian events in Hong Kong. A chemical detachment of the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLA Navy) conducted the two-hour drill, which included moving local residents to safer places, examining the chemical toxicity and cleaning-up chemicals in the affected area. The PLA Navy detachment has been assigned to take up the job during the Olympic Games and over the past six months the troops have been busy training for combating terror attacks with the use of chemical weapons.
