A suspect has been arrested in connection to last night's explosion on a Guangzhou bus, as disturbing new surveillance footage and images continue to be shared online.
A fire erupted on the route 301 bus at 8:46pm last night as it stopped at the Nandunhe bus station, killing two and injuring 30.
CCTV footage shows passengers running out of the bus in a panic. According to eyewitnesses, they were also screaming "there's a bomb on the bus!"
Nevertheless, many people waiting for the bus remained standing at the its side watching the drama unfold — until being blown back by a wall of fire.
Guangzhou police say they have arrested a 25-year-old man surnamed Ou from Hunan province and that he has confessed to arson, but the statement gave no indication of a possible motive.
