The popular seaside city of Qingdao in east China's Shandong province was the theater Friday of a maritime anti-terrorist drill for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The drill, involving more than 800 marine police and 27 naval vessels, was held in the closed sailing venue area set aside for the 2008 Olympic Games.
A team of terrorists, riding on a motorboat and armed with guns and bombs, "hijacked" an oil tanker and two hostages and tried to break in to the venue.
The marine police immediately dispatched naval vessels to counter and capture the terrorists.
They practiced various tactics including encircling and pursuit maneuvers, blocking tactics and dive-and-search, according to the Ministry of Public Security.
The marine police will have daily responsibility for the safety of the 2008 Olympic sailing competition, which will take place in Qingdao from August 9 to 21. About 400 sailors will compete for gold medals in eleven Olympic sailing events.
