The probe into an explosion at a Beijing airport is making progress.

Police say the bomber has been petitioning about alleged unjust treatment that resulted in his paralysis for ten years.

Ji Zhongxing, 34, set off a home-made explosive device outside an arrivals hall of the Beijing Capital International Airport on Saturday evening.

Ji sustained injuries to his arm and is currently receiving treatment.

The explosion caused no other injuries.

The police cordon at the arrivals hall has been removed, and normal order has been restored at the airport.

Ji's father said he saw his son at home on Friday night but couldn't find him the next morning.

And Ji didn't tell his father his whereabouts.

According to a police investigation, Ji once worked in Dongguan City of south China's Guangdong Province.

For ten years, he has been petitioning about alleged unjust treatment that resulted in his paralysis.

Aviation industry experts urge people not to take extreme measures to vent their anger as such moves could disrupt public order.

Dongguan City has set up a special team to investigate Ji's claim
