Gasoline bomb explodes at rural bank in China's Tibetan area, 39 injured. 44329.jpegAt least 39 people were injured, six of them seriously, in a gasoline bomb explosion at a rural bank branch in a heavily Tibetan area of northwest China's Gansu Province, a person at the local police station said by telephone, but there were no immediate signs that the attack was politically motivated, New York Times informs.

Ten employees were seen jumping from the fourth-floor windows of the bank to escape the flames from the homemade petrol bomb which was thrown around 8am., witnesses said. Many others were seen being taken out on stretchers to the local hospital.

Local media, citing officials at the local Communist Party committee, said Yang had fled the scene and was still being sought by police, Telegraph.co.uk says.
