Blast Near U.S. Embassy In Beijing Injures Suspect

A person detonated an explosive device near the U.S. embassy in Beijing on Thursday afternoon, according to several media reports.

The only person injured in the incident was the individual who allegedly set off the explosion, an embassy spokesperson told CNN. Reuters said the suspect was a 26-year-old man from the Inner Mongolia region. 

In a statement, the U.S. embassy said a bomb had exploded, but local police described the weapon as a “firework device.” 

The blast was was loud enough to be heard blocks away. Videos posted to social media show smoke hovering near the compound as people wandered through the streets outside the embassy, a heavily fortified structure in the city’s Chaoyang district.
