Man imprisoned for making bomb hoax

THE 29-year-old man surnamed Li was sentenced to one year and six months in prison for making a bomb hoax, Xuhui District People's Court announced today.

Shanghai police received a call from Li who claimed to have planted bombs in Shanghai South Railway Station on September 8, 2010 and 150 police officers were immediately sent to the scene to search for explosives.

After combing the area back and forth for hours, police found no suspicious items and found Li made the threat report in a state of drunkenness. Li was detained on the same night when he was asleep in his dormitory.

Li admitted that he made up the story as he was very depressed after losing his World Expo ticket a few days before and being scolded by his father.

After drinking two bottles of wine, Li dialed 110 several times to threaten that he had planted bombs in Shanghai South Railway Station.

Li came from Anhui Province with his father to work at a Shanghai construction company. Being poorly educated and introverted, Li spent his spare time drinking and playing cards.

The Xuhui District People's Court convicted Li of making false terrorist threat and disturbing public order.
