BEIJING, July 21 (Itar-Tass) - No Russians were hurt in Saturday’s bomb explosion at Beijing airport that occurred at around 18:30 local time (14:30 Moscow time) at Beijing Airport’s Terminal 3, the Russian embassy in Beijing told Itar-Tass.
"Russian air companies do not use that terminal in that period of time. The incident did not affect the work of Aeroflot because the Russian carrier was using terminal 2 at the time of the blast,” the embassy source went on to say.
A 34-year-old wheel-chaired man who had exploded a self-made bomb at Beijing Airport’s Terminal 3 on Saturday was injured but his life is out of danger, the Xinhua news agency reports.
According to police investigators, Jib Zhongxing, a resident of the eastern province of Shandong, detonated the bomb when the airport staff tried to prevent him from distributing leaflets to draw attention to himself and his problems. Doctors are taking care of him now.
No other people were hurt except Ji Zhongxing.
The Beijing airport is operating normally.
