I just read the main papers for all of Asia and there isn't any mention of a suicide bomber. Although it is on AlertNet. I have some friends in
Henan that I am gonna try to get a hold of but if there was a bombing there are two things that one could be sure of happening:
1: Within 24 hours of the government determining what organization was behind the attack, said organization will be hunted like a mad dog and brouught
down swiftly, and probably without the media's knowing until after the fact.
2: If it was a politically motivated attack, anyone anywhere that has any link to the bombing will be in Beijing very very quickly, or they will just
China dosen't play around when it comes to stuff like this, they really make sure that they get things covered. It is also entirely possible that
one would not hear of a bombing unless it was in a major international city like Hong Kong, the government dosen't like to look in any way weak.
