South Korea’s special forces carried out a demonstration of their response to a possible security alert at a conference centre in the capital Seoul on Tuesday.
The COEX centre will be the venue for the 2012 Nuclear Security Summit, where leaders from more than 50 countries are expected to meet at the end of March.
Police SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) teams responded to a simulated attack involving explosives, chemical infection, fire, and hostage taking.
Around 600 people from the police, fire department and military attended the security drill.
Hwang Cheon-sang, Chief of Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said his teams were “fully prepared to take measures for any circumstances” to protect the visiting dignitaries.
US President Barack Obama, and Chinese President Hu Jintao will be among those leaders attending the nuclear conference.
The two-day summit will discuss the safe use of nuclear power around the world.
