HOUSTON, May 27 -- Military and police forces from across the U.S. are conducting SWAT-style terror drills in BP's Texas City refinery, the nation's deadliest and dirtiest industrial site. The facility has exploded with alarming frequency in recent years, including a Mar. 23, 2005 explosion that killed 15 workers."

The terror drills, which involve explosives, began Memorial Day, and will continue until Sunday, June 1. Extra security will be on hand to keep residents away. BP security supervisor Ben Wier will be present, along with other BP personnel.
