Machine-gun carrying terrorists swarmed Sentosa's Tanjong Beach on Thursday morning, firing openly into a screaming crowd.

But the invaders were quickly subdued by police officers from the Special Operations Command, who arrived at the scene within minutes.

No one, however, was harmed, or arrested.

This is because the incident was a part of a joint contingency response and evacuation exercise conducted by the Singapore Police Force, Singapore Civil Defence Force with the Sentosa Safety and Security Watch Group.
