Beijing to Include Counter Terrorism and Anti-Violence in Public Stability Work

Following the October 28 incident in Beijing in which a car crashed into a crowd in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square causing five deaths and dozens of injuries, Guo Jinlong, Secretary of the Beijing Municipal Party Committee, issued a directive that counter terrorism and anti-violence measures are to be included in the city’s public stability work. According to Guo, the effort will focus on the development of public safety measures in strategic key locations and improve the early warning ability of the city’s management system, especially in its data collection on the mobile population living in leased apartments and hotels.
