Tokyo Police Prep for World Cup Soccer with Anti-Terrorism Drills

This is a Drill, This is a Drill.

Tokyo's Metropolitan Police Department's special unit officers descend the wall from a roof to a window in their attempt to rescue football players locked up in their dormitory room by "rifle-wielding terrorists" Tuesday during a security drill in preparation for the World Cup soccer tournament in Tokyo.

A total of 1,150 police officers participated in the 90-minute drill conducted in accordance with seven scenarios from wild crowd control to bomb disposal during the May 31-June 30 World Cup.
