Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh directly commanded the exercise, which involved nearly 1,000 police, soldiers and personnel from relevant agencies.

Scenarios are based on the assumption that a civil plane was attacked by a group of 8 armed hijackers while flying in Vietnam airspace. The hijackers kept some passengers as hostages and attempted to flee the country.

After negotiation failed, the counter-terror forces attacked and arrested the terrorists and released hostages.

The Deputy Prime Minister emphasized that in the context of complicated global security, the drills was very significant to test and ensure a multi-agency response to possible terror attacks and enhance effective co-ordination between relevant agencies.

Dinh Viet Son, deputy head of the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam said the exercise achieved its goals and equipped stakeholders in the aviation sector with essential skills to deal with possible terror attacks at the airport.
