REPORT: There Was A Small Explosion At Beijing Airport

There’s reportedly been a large explosion at Terminal 3 of the Beijing Airport, according to multiple people on Twitter including China based Dealbook columnist Bill Bishop (@niubi). Images of the incident are spreading rapidly around on Weibo, China’s answer to Twitter .

Here’s a photo of the aftermath:
