  1. This happened a couple of weeks ago. “My Pet Jawa”:http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/archives/111050.php has a summary post with links and pictures.

    Two other links of interest: “China Daily’s official report”:http://www2.chinadaily.com.cn/english/doc/2005-08/09/content_467358.htm and “Horse’s Mouth”:http://thehorsesmouth.blog-city.com/fuzhoubombing.htm

    The bomber seemingly had been in a disupte with neighbours and suffering lung cancer and was driven to this by dispair. No terror link, just a desperate man doing a dispicable act.

    Let me know if you want more information.

    This is mind-blowing:

    There were more than a thousand reported bombings last year.

    I wouldn’t call it “mind-blowing” so much as par for the course. Anything that can threaten “public order” (such as SARS and even the anti-Japanese protests) or suggests that there are threats to public order (bombings and, yes, even the recent anti-Japanese protests) is locked down for as long as possible. What made the bombing in Fuzhou different is that it’s the provincial capital of Fujian Province and was far too big to keep under wraps even with police seizing cameras left and right.
