Chinese man kills self, 1 other with suicide bomb

BEIJING--A villager ran into a meeting of local Communist Party officials in eastern China on Friday and detonated explosives strapped to his body, killing himself and one other person, a state-run news agency reported.

Four people were injured in the suicide bombing at a meeting of a village party committee in Anhui province, the China News Service said.

The report cited a local resident as saying the villager who carried out the attack had repeatedly sought government welfare but had not obtained it.

The government of Anqing, a county that oversees the village, said on its website that authorities were investigating.
