 A suspected bomb attack killed seven people and wounded 14 in China's far west Xinjiang region, a government official said Thursday.

The explosion occurred on a three-wheeled vehicle Thursday morning at a bridge in Aksu city in southwestern Xinjiang, said Hou Hanmin, a spokeswoman for the Xinjiang government. She said the blast is being treated as a criminal case.

"It's still unclear what material on that tricycle caused the explosion.... The police apprehended one suspect. They're still investigating the case," Hou said.

The official Xinhua News Agency reported that 12 people were hurt. No reason was given for the discrepancy, and that report did not give further details.
