Breaking: FOUR DEAD After Minibus Drives Through Beijing Market

Four people were killed and several more injured after a minibus drove through a market in Beijing, China.

Police took the “relevant personnel” into custody.

Channel News Asia reported:

Four people were killed when a minibus drove into a market in a northern part of Beijing and many others have sustained injuries, the city’s police said on Wednesday, but they did not suggest it was a militant-related incident.

The incident happened at about 3 p.m. (0700 GMT) in a small town in Beijing’s largely rural Changping district, when the minibus “drove into” an agricultural market and hit people there, Beijing police said in a short statement on their microblog.

The injured have been taken to hospital, the statement said, without given a number of people involved.

Police have taken custody of the vehicle and “relevant personnel” and are investigating further, it added, without giving other details.
