Beijing airport bomber on trial - on stretcher
BEIJING (AFP) - A disabled Chinese man who set off a homemade explosive device at Beijing's international airport went on trial Tuesday in the capital, still suffering from the effects of the blast.
Ji Zhongxing, who lost his left hand in the explosion in July, was wheeled into court wearing pyjamas and on a yellow stretcher, pictures posted on a verified social media account run by Beijing court authorities showed.
He remained on it during the proceedings.
Ji, 34, faces a charge of "causing an explosion" but told the court he had not set off the device on purpose, although he had built it himself, the court said.
