Handicapped man goes on trial for blast at Beijing airport
Beijing: A physically challenged Chinese man, who triggered an explosion at Beijing International Airport in July to highlight his grievances against police brutality, went on trial here on Tuesday.
Ji Zhongxing, a wheelchair-bound man from east China`s Shandong Province, appeared on a stretcher at the Beijing Chaoyang District People`s Court.
Ji, a three-wheeler driver, set off a homemade explosive device outside the airport`s Terminal 3 arrivals exit on July 20, severely injuring himself. A police officer at the scene also suffered minor injuries.
While setting off the explosive, 34-year-old Ji threw leaflets alleging that he was paralysed due to police beating.
The Beijing Chaoyang District People`s Procuratorate filed charges against Ji on August 29, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
According to China`s criminal law, anyone who causes an explosion or uses other means to endanger public security without causing serious consequences, shall be sentenced between three to ten years in prison.
