” . . . On Thursday, the newspaper Southern Metropolis Daily said the parcel bombs had been detonated in two ways. In some cases, people were reportedly hired to deliver the packages, which exploded upon being opened. In other cases, the bombs appeared to have been detonated by remote control, including one that exploded in the dormitory of the Liucheng Animal Husbandry Bureau, which caused the building to partly collapse, killing several people, the newspaper said.”
