Security Drills at TMI

The Harrisburg Patriot-News:

The simulated attack on the Three Mile Island nuclear plant began in the dark, shortly before 8 p.m., with an explosion.

The attackers, presumably terrorists intent on causing a reactor meltdown, tried to blow up part of the double-walled security fence that rings the plant. But they didn't get far.

Within minutes they were dead, killed by Wackenhut security officers under contract with plant owner Exelon Nuclear to protect the nuclear station. One security officer was killed.
