After receiving an unsatisfying ruling about a traffic violation, this man, surname Zhou, strapped 1 kg of explosives to his body and planted himself outside the High Court in Kunming, Yunnan. Armed with an electronic detonator, he threatened to blow himself up at any minute. Police cordoned off 100 meters around the entrance, and had to expand that area to 200 meters after a large crowd of observers gathered. After a little over an hour, negotiators managed to persuade the man to give up the explosives.
