n Monday evening, an explosion rocked a public bus in the Sichuan city of Leshan, injuring 15 people.
Early this morning, local police announced that they had detained a suspect in connection with the incident, a 31-year-old man surnamed Gu with a history of theft and drug addiction who was one of those injured in the blast.
Police failed to give a motive for the man allegedly setting off an explosion inside a crowded public bus, but said that they had ruled out any links to terrorism.
Gu was the most seriously injured in the blast with the 14 other passengers only receiving minor injuries.
In video footage that has been circulated online, the bus is seen stopped at a crosswalk as people rush to escape, dashing out the doors and throwing themselves out of windows before the blast occurs, sending a plume of heavy smoke pouring out onto the street.
