Chinese ‘parcel bombs’ kill seven
At least seven people have been killed and dozens injured in a series of explosions in a small town in the southern Chinese region of Guangxi.
Seventeen bombs went off in a number of places in Liucheng county, including government buildings.
Photographs posted online show a large plume of smoke coming from one partially collapsed building.
Authorities say they are not treating the attacks as terrorism. A 33-year-old man is being held as a suspect. The suspect’s surname is Wei, a state-owned Guangxi Daily newspaper said.
A prison and a supermarket were among the other buildings hit in the attacks.
