Beijing to conduct air raid drill

Beijing, Sep 14 (IANS) China’s capital Beijing is set to conduct an air raid drill on September 19 in 10 districts and counties to improve attack capabilities, the media reported on Monday.

Sirens will sound in outlying districts of the Chinese capital, including Fangshan, Tongzhou and Daxing, the Global Times reported citing the Beijing civil defence bureau as saying.

They urged the public not to panic when the sirens sound, especially those in stores, cinemas, bus stations, ports and parks.
