BEIJING: Chinese police on Friday arrested an ex-convict suspected of setting off a series of explosions outside ruling Communist Party offices in a northern city that killed one person and wounded eight.
Feng Zhijun was apprehended around 2:00am on Friday and confessed to the crime, the Shanxi provincial government said in a statement. It said the 41-year-old had been previously sentenced to nine years in prison for theft, but gave no word on a motive for the blasts.
Bomb making materials and a "large amount" of other evidence was found at Feng's residence, the statement said.
Wednesday's blasts were reminiscent of the kind of revenge attacks occasionally launched by disgruntled citizens in China. Assailants angered at perceived injustices have blown up buses, stabbed officials and attacked schools.
Homemade bombs are often the weapon of choice in such cases because firearms are tightly controlled and very hard to obtain in China.

Just yesterday, everyone was saying this bomber was Muslim. Everyone jump your guns, or defend yourself.
What's next, he was a Muslim convict/farmer?
The Chinese said he was Muslim no one else did!
They say that there are over 100 riots a day in China
RESIST COMMUNIST TYRANNY.

Why does a thief change tactics completely and begin setting bombs at the local communist party offices? Does not make too much sense.

corruption and the huge wealth gap that exists ,is the most important issue that the government must resolve,,other wise it wont be outside people that will try to stop Chinese progress, it will be the internal problems that will
Great. More Chinese refuge will rush to America!
What are "self-made bombs"? Can bombs really make themselves?
Hahaha - the headline sounds like it's from The Onion.
