TAIYUAN - A court in north China's Taiyuan City handed down the death sentence to a man convicted of setting off explosions outside the Communist Party of China (CPC)'s headquarters in the provincial capital in November 2013.

Feng Zhijun was sentenced to death by the Taiyuan Intermediate People's Court. He said he will not appeal to a higher court, a statement from the court said.

Feng placed bombs in at least two locations outside the compound of the provincial Communist Party committee in the city of Taiyuan on November 6, killing one and injuring 17 people, according to the statement.

He was apprehended two days later. The 42-year-old man had been previously sentenced to nine years in prison for theft, according to the statement.
