At least one person has been killed and eight wounded after a series of improvised devices exploded outside an office building of a provincial headquarters of the Communist Party of China in Taiyuan.

Seven explosions occurred at around 07:40 local time near the Shanxi Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China, South China Morning Post reports.

One person has been killed and eight wounded and two cars damaged in the blasts, according to official reports.

The explosive devices were planted in roadside flowerbeds, according to CCTV, which added over 20 vehicles were damaged by the explosions including the passing buses.

Ball bearings likely embedded within an improvised explosive device (IED) were found at the scene, Xinhua reports. 

Taiyuan is the largest city in the northern Shanxi province, with 4 million residents, located about 250 miles northeast of Beijing. 

Last week, the Chinese government pointed to Islamists after an attack in central Beijing near Tiananmen Square that left five dead.

Not all Muslims are jihadist but all jihadist are indeed Muslim.

  


Every Religion in the Wold is still a strike Force within a State. Look in Thora, Bible, Koran. It's all the same: Others are Doomed, thats the Enemy and many more Hack'n'Slay Ideology...

Not all muslims want to kill everyone not the same as them. I was deployed twice to Iraq, and once to Afghanistan. I spoke with locals and they are just like you and I, with religion playing a major part of course. They are not all out to get you and kill you, that is islamaphobia. America brainwashed us into thinking terrorist meant a muslim. When in fact the American government is a terrorist and one of the largest out there. Not all muslims are jihadists, those that are tend to have a more radical thinking. Interpreting the Quran into their own views is what they do.
