Three simultaneous blasts occurred at three different government buildings today in Fuzhou, China.  The explosions were possibly the result of car bombs, according to Aljazeera.

Explosions are reported at three government buildings in an eastern Chinese city, possibly caused by explosions in cars, according to state media.

The nearly simultaneous blasts happened in Fuzhou city, Jiangxi province, on Thursday morning, the official Xinhua news agency reported. It did not give details of the cause or casualties.

A Jiangxi government news website said explosions may have occurred in cars parked in front of the prosecutor’s office, a district-level government office and outside a district drug administration office.

No one was reported killed, but at least five were injured according to the report. The windows were blown out of the nearby government buildings.

No one has been captured for the incidents, but BusinessWeek reports that a disgruntled farmer is suspected for the blasts. It is difficult to believe that a single farmer could afford to carry out three car bombs given that the average annual income in the area is less that $5,000.
