EU Conducts WMD Response Exercise

European Union military experts were scheduled today to conclude a three-day exercise in Belgium aimed at refining techniques for responding to a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear attack, the European Defense Agency said (see GSN, July 9).

The exercise involved roughly 100 defense experts considering tactics for handling three potential sets of WMD incidents.

The European Defense Agency spent two years developing WMD response tactics that were expected to be tested in this week’s drill (European Defense Agency release, Nov. 12).
