BEIJING (AP) -- State media say a Chinese man has set off explosives outside the home of his former in-laws in a southern Chinese city, killing seven and injuring 18.
The official Xinhua News Agency quoted police as saying the man was seeking revenge following a dispute with his divorced wife over custody of their children.
It said the man, who was critically injured, told police he set off the homemade explosives in a car outside the house in the coastal city of Zhanjiang.
Xinhua said most of the victims were relatives of the man's former in-laws who were visiting the family during the Lunar New Year holiday. It said five of the injured were in intensive care. The blast also damaged several nearby homes.
