ATHENS, Greece (AP) — There's an early morning buzz at Varvakios Market in downtown Athens as dozens of butchers prepare cuts. Knives slice through fresh meat and stripped-clean carcasses tumble into a white vat as the first customers turn up.
Police and emergency services took part in the biggest counter-terrorism drill held in London to date on Tuesday, with about 1,000 officers testing their response to a potential militant attack on the British capital. The two-day exercise was planned before that, following attacks in Paris in January in which Islamist gunmen killed 17 people in a rampage, a goverment spokesman said. Most of the drill will take place out of public view in several locations across London.
