DUBAI – Armed gunmen took passengers hostage at a mock Dubai Metro station as part of a live hostage drill by Dubai Police at its new police control centre.
The hostage-taking simulation was held a part of the opening of the new operations room at Hamdan Smart Station by Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai.
