Foreigners Grapple With Crime in China

From AP:

The troubled Chinese man, obsessed with his outstanding debts, boarded the tourist bus and opened his jacket to reveal explosives. In the only English he spoke that morning, he told the frightened Australian passengers, “I’m sorry.”

Hours later, the assailant was shot dead by a police sniper, his blood spattering a hostage’s jeans. Police jumped over her and shot him again to make sure he was dead.

The incident earlier this month in Xi’an, one of China’s most popular tourist cities, was an embarrassment for China as it prepares for the global spotlight that comes with this summer’s Olympic Games.
