Chinese City on North Korea Border Holds Drill
BEIJING April 12, 2013 (AP)
A northeastern Chinese city near the border with North Korea staged an air raid drill amid tensions over Pyongyang’s latest threats, state media reported Friday.
Authorities in Huichen, a city of 250,000 people in Jilin province, sounded alarms in residential areas on Thursday morning, the China News Service reported. Participants were shown to underground shelters and the all-clear was sounded 30 minutes later, it said.
CNS quoted the leader of the exercise, Xu Helin, as saying the city plans a series of drills to boost residents’ “disaster response abilities.”
