Comments from NetEase:


I hope there not too many innocent lives are lost.


It looks pretty frightening. In the future, if I ride the public bus, I also better choose a spot that is good for escaping.


So incredible, but please do not be another Chengdu scene.


I am already afraid to ride public buses. Unfortunately, I neither have the money to buy my own car, so how am I supposed to live…


Did those passengers bring hammers?


I think I cannot ride air-conditioned buses this summer~~~MLGBtibet, why is this kind of thing always happening!


Is this real?
Could it be a fire department exercise/drill?
I’m already afraid.


Several in a row, are these planned terrorist attacks, ZD [“Zang Du” , Tibetan independence] groups??


Is this real or fake??? How come the news has not reported it? It is also possible that China’s media are all afraid to say anything!!


No matter how many more people are burned to death, there still will not be anyone paying attention to it!!! When something happens, a big deal is made for a while, but after a while, there is not even a fart!! If you don’t believe me, just wait and see!!!

Also on Sina and Mop (Chinese).
