Videos circulated on Chinese social media show people fleeing away from the Wanda Plaza building as loud blasts ring out from the foot of the structure as well as on a higher floor.

While initial investigations suggest the blasts were criminal acts, authorities did not immediately provide further details, according to the South China Morning Post.
