An explosion at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport has left four injured and hospitalized, according to local media. A “home-made” device, possibly fireworks, is suspected.
Images from the scene show people being taken to ambulances as eyewitnesses gathered. According to CCTV, the Sunday afternoon blast left at least four people injured.
Police are at the scene.
An airport spokesperson earlier told the People’s Daily there were suspicions of a “home-made” device, and a later confirmation was issued saying the source of the blast was a person’s luggage.
The incident occurred at the Terminal Two ticketing area shortly after 2PM, Reuters says. The suspected fireworks reportedly detonated spontaneously.
