10:15, April 29, 2013

JINAN, April 28 (Xinhua) -- Police in east China's Shandong Province detained a bus terminal employee on Sunday, one day after the disgruntled employee fabricated and spread an online rumor regarding a possible bombing at the terminal.

The man, whose surname was given as Zhu, will be put under 10-day administrative detention in the provincial capital of Jinan for disrupting public order with fabricated information, according to a statement issued by the Tianqiao District branch of Jinan's municipal public security bureau.

The statement said Zhu posted an online threat Saturday night saying that a bomb would go off at the terminal on April 30.

Police officers said the rumor caused panic among local residents.

After being detained, Zhu confessed that he made up the rumor after experiencing great stress at work, as the upcoming May Day holiday has increased traffic at the terminal.

Zhu said he hoped the rumor would reduce the number of people traveling through the terminal.

Zhu said his dissatisfaction with the terminal's management also led him to concoct the rumor.
