The Ground Self-Defense Force and Fukui Prefectural Police conducted a joint security drill Monday simulating an incursion by armed commandos on the Fukui coast, which is dotted with atomic plants.

The purpose of the drill, conducted as a strategy session using prefectural police force maps, was to enhance measures against large-scale terrorist activities in the wake of the attacks in the United States in 2001 and occasional intrusions of North Korean spy ships into Japanese territory, police officials said.
