Now this is weird, and a little disconcerting. 新京报/The Beijing News’ Gan Hao reports that a man was injured when a small erguotou bottle lying on the ground that he kicked exploded. Five other bottles containing a mysterious orange powder were found nearby, scattered over an area of five square metres. The incident happened outside the Xinfadi Market early yesterday morning, and the bomb squad was called to deal with it.
There’s more in the story, but those are the key details, and I’m still feeling pretty run down from that cold that turned out to be a lot worse than I thought it would be, so I’m just going to leave it at this.
