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.
