7 blasts near party office in China kill 1
« on: November 07, 2013, 02:17:17 PM »

BEIJING: One person was killed and eight injured as series of seven blasts β€” triggered by homemade bombs packed with ball bearings β€” rocked the provincial office of the Communist Party in the northern Chinese city of Taiyuan on Wednesday.

The local government in Shanxi province confirmed the blasts but did not indicate who could have done it.

"Police officers found steel balls, circuit boards and similar explosive materials at the scene, apparently packed into the bombs to cause maximum damage and injury," the official Xinhua news agency said. State television said the explosive devices were hidden in roadside flower beds. One of the injured was listed in serious condition, and a bus and several other vehicles had their windows blown out or suffered other damage.

Blood stains were visible on the sidewalk and on the door of a damaged SUV.

Police closed off the broad street in front of the party headquarters, and fire trucks, ambulances and police vehicles were parked in the area. State media showed a man lying on the ground, apparently dead.

I heard it from Harry Reid who heard it from someone else, the Tea Party was responsible. :silly:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
