SWAT members of the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau use a step
ladder to smash the window of a hijacked bus during a joint anti-terrorism and riot
control drill with a special unit of China’s paramilitary police force at a training
ground on the outskirts of Beijing in September 2010. According to The Associated
Press, the drill was performed to show the capabilities of China’s special police
forces in maintaining the social stability of the capital and in counterterrorism
and anti-riot operations.
