A man in a wheelchair ignited a home-made explosive device at Beijing's international airport Saturday, state media reported, injuring himself but no others.
The man, identified as Ji Zhongxing from Shandong province and born in 1979, was being treated for injuries, the state-run Xinhua news agency said, citing police.
The explosion, which occurred in the airport's Terminal 3 just outside the arrivals exit, caused no other injuries, the report said.
But the blast nonetheless created momentary panic and confusion at one of the world's busiest airports.
