BEIJING - Beijing railway police held an anti-terror drill Saturday, ahead of the week-long National Day holiday and the upcoming 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.
In a simulated hostage scenario in a railway station, armed police rescued the hostage and arrested criminal suspects.
Advanced anti-terror tools such as an anti-explosion robot were tested in the drill.
Huang Ping, a Beijing railway police officer, said the drill was designed to examine the emergency response and attack ability of railway police.
"With the simulated drills, railway police are expected to deal with emergency situations successfully with high efficiency," he said.
