Seoul orders anti-terror measures

President Roh Moo-hyun yesterday ordered the government to work out measures to cope with possible terrorist attacks here in the event the United States launches a military strike against Iraq, his aides said. Roh issued the order in a daily meeting with his advisers and senior presidential staff, during which they discussed possible fallout from the war. “We should brace for terror attacks that could occur at home to allay the people’s concern about public security,” Roh was quoted as saying. The president also instructed the government to work out short- and long-term countermeasures to effectively cope with the imminent war against Iraq.
