NYPD Exercise Simulates Mumbai-Style Attack

December 21, 2010  | 

Earlier this month, the New York Police Department ran an elaborately coordinated exercise meant to mimic the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks involving attacks to multiple targets, reports the Wall Street Journal.

During the Dec. 3 simulation, a team of terrorists unleashed a coordinated series of bombings and gun attacks around the city. At one point, terrorists attacked New York police officials visiting wounded officers in a hospital.

The NYPD simulation was different from any of the terrorist incidents that have actually hit New York, including the 9/11 commercial airline attacks or the foiled Times Square car-bombing attempt in May.

Instead, the simulation deliberately mirrored the 2008 massacre in Mumbai, where 10 gunmen attacked various locations in the Indian capital, including two luxury hotels, a hospital and a railway station. The attack stretched on for three days as hostages were taken at several of the locations. Ultimately, 174 people were killed.
