China school head denies 'feud' behind deadly blast
BEIJING (AFP) - A Chinese headmaster denied an explosion outside his primary school which killed two people and injured 44 others was the result of a feud involving him, media said on Tuesday.
Many children were among those hurt in the blast, which happened when a man rode a motorcycle past the school gate in Guilin as they arrived for classes on Monday.
The cause of the explosion was not clear, but early reports suggested the motorcycle caught fire before a "loud bang" was heard.
"Some media said the cause of the explosion could be somebody being involved with a feud with the school principal, who took his retaliation to extremes," said the People's Daily, the mouthpiece of China's ruling Communist party.
