Defense News has a story today that describes an anti-terror exercise that is taking place this week in Denmark:
The Danish government launched its first anti-terror exercise on behalf of the European Union on Sept. 18, a multiple-event scenario that brings together 300 experts on weapons of mass destruction and civil emergency responders from seven EU countries â€” Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovenia and Sweden.
Codenamed EU DANEX, the five-day exercise is structured around this scenario: An extremist group plans to take advantage of the chaos produced by a severe storm over Denmark and southern Sweden to set off explosive devices in both countries. The simulated bombs are targeted against the regionâ€™s critical infrastructure to create mass panic.
Participants in the exercise will have to deal with attacks on an ammonia storage facility, the release of a chemical warfare agent in a command center, and the explosion in an urban area of a so-called dirty bomb containing radioactive material. Additional explosive devices will cause fire and leaks at a natural gas hub.
