Urumqi (China), April 2 (Xinhua) A bomb blast in an office building Thursday left one dead and two injured in Urumqi in China’s northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the police said.
A man detonated the explosives at 2.10 p.m., killing himself, the police said. Two other people were injured in the explosion.

Han Wushun, 42, threatened the office workers and demanded the company, Xinjiang Beixin Road and Bridge Construction Co. Ltd, to pay him 4,500 yuan ($662) in unpaid wages, before detonating the explosives, the police said.

Han had sued the company for the money, but lost the case in July last year, police said.

Han walked into the first floor of the building and told an office worker that “Society is unfair. I don’t want to live any more”.

Han said he wanted to talk to the head of the company.

The explosion damaged some office facilities, according to police.

The police launched an investigation into the incident.
