BEIJING - A petrol bomb set off on Friday by a disgruntled former employee at a rural bank in a Tibetan region of northwestern China's Gansu province caused 39 injuries, Xinhua news agency and the local government said.

Six people were seriously wounded in the blast at the Tianzhu County Rural Credit United Cooperative in the city of Wuwei in Tianzhu county, which a witness called a homemade "gasoline bomb," Xinhua said in an English-language report.

The Tianzhu government said that Yang Xianwen, a Han Chinese fired from his job at the bank last month after being accused of embezzlement, had thrown a bottle filled with gasoline into a meeting room, setting it ablaze.
