Chi­nese ‘par­cel bombs’ kill seven

Daily Trust - - WORLD -

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.
