The blast rocked the site after a man reportedly threw a homemade bomb into the gated area, according to local media.

Chinese media say witnesses have reported the man intended to be hurl the explosive into the embassy but it exploded before he could get it over the fence, injuring people and a police car in its path.

Odd timing. No other China disturbances going on - other than the trade “wars” being hyped by ABCNNBCBS. Hard to figure another country (NK, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghan ...) would go into China to create violence against US there, on Chinese soil.

I wonder if the Chinese allow mosques to be built anywhere near the embassy?

Other articles talked about a potential female self-immolator: “There were earlier reports that police had taken away a woman who had tried to set herself on fire near the embassy at 11am local time, several hours before the reported blast.” https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-44963700

I wouldn’t. Lot of Anti US sentiment running through China because of the way their economy has been hit and the Chicom media is doing everything it can to blame the US for it.

Not huge. Evidently small, and only injured perp. All clear sounded.

Here is CNN's report.

“Huge blast” makes it sound like there’s nothing left of the building

William Yang @WilliamYang120 I typed in the keyword "北京美國大使館爆炸" just minutes ago and the real-time posts from just 20 minutes ago have all been removed. The most recent post dates back to 2016. #Censorship is def deployed within a very short period of time. #China #USembassyexplosion #Beijing

Chinese language keyword “US Embassy in Beijing explosion” is already being censored on Weibo.

Yes, does seem less serious than that. Odd thing to me is location (China) & two supposed incidents. Women with petrol than men with explosive or fireworks, supposedly hours apart.

We want to continue to loot the U.S. Yankee. We get angry when you get smart. We like U.S.A when it was stupid.
2 for us, 1 for Yankee. Been that way long time. You like!
