Four people were killed when a man detonated a bomb made at a government office in a village in southern China, authorities said, in a rare act of violent social protest.
A 59-year-old man suspected of being responsible for the explosive device was also killed in the blast, local police said on their official Weibo account, adding that five people were injured in the blast.
The incident happened near the southern city of Guangzhou on Monday morning in the small village of Mingjing, which has about 3,000 inhabitants and is the target site of a major property redevelopment involving the relocation of locals.
A video shared on the Jiemian news site showed a ruined office, with blood scattered on the walls and at least two people motionless on the ground.
Local media said the blast took place in the village committee office, which decides on land use-related issues.
Officials had given 270 hectares of land to a developer in Shanghai last year to recreate an old village to attract tourists, according to the Guangzhou Daily.
The eight billion yuan ($ 1.2 billion) project involves relocating farmers already on land. Some people claiming to live near the area said online that the attack was triggered by a compensation dispute.
VET can not independently verify that the two are related.
It is unclear how many families will be relocated for the project.
Farmers in China have faced forced evictions and illegal land grabbing for decades as the country ran towards urbanization, often leading to social unrest.
Local governments received land from one million to five million agricultural workers each year between 2005 and 2015 often in violation of national land use laws with little or no compensation found a study by the University of Hong Kong.
In a major upheaval to its property law last year China gave judges more independence when deciding on such matters and curbing the influence of local officials, but the judiciary is still ultimately accountable to the Communist party.
