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.
