Two people were killed and several injured when a homemade bomb went off outside a school in Guilin, China, about 320 miles northwest of Hong Kong. Reports place the number of injured between 17 and 44, most of the victims children. The bomber, who was also killed in the blast, was reported to have been a migrant worker whose child did not gain admission to the school. Video surveillance showed the man driving a motorcycle up to the school entrance before it caught fire and exploded. According to Chinese media sources the lack of educational opportunities for the children of migrant workers is widespread, and the primary school in question had an extensive waiting list.
