More than 4,000 people participated in a security and anti-terror drill that was organized in various locations in Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday morning.

The exercise took place at four locations, namely Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Cong Xa Paris (Paris Roundabout), and in front of the Youth Culture House and District 1 administration’s headquarters.

The drill was aimed at testing the ability and strategies of relevant units when responding to emergency situations.

A total of four hypothetical situations were prepared for the drill.

In the second situation, officers had to promptly deal with a group of people who disturbed security and order at Tan Son Nhat.
