India Drafts Procedures for WMD Terrorism

Indian leaders have developed a strategy to combat potential terrorist attacks involving biological, chemical, nuclear or radiological weapons, the Press Trust of India reported yesterday.

The procedures include programs for identification and yearly reviews of potential targets, creation and training of specialized response teams, and training for fire and police personnel, according to a statement from Federal Minister of State for Home Affairs Sri Prakash Jaiswal.

The procedures have been distributed to the various local and national government agencies. Each department is expected to draft an individual plan and prepare preparedness measures, PTI reported. Four out of eight battalions of the National Disaster Response Force have been set aside for responding to radiological, nuclear, biological or chemical attacks (Press Trust of India/Red Orbit, July 25).
