Chinese nabbed over San Francisco consulate arson
(01-07 08:41)

US federal agents announced Monday the arrest of a Chinese national in the investigation of a fire set intentionally at the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco.
FBI Special Agent in Charge David J. Johnson said Yan Feng, 39, was arrested Friday after he called police in the San Francisco suburb. The FBI arranged for his surrender.
The suspect, who has permanent resident status, made his first court appearance Monday and was held on charges of causing damage to property of a foreign government and arson, Johnson said.
No one was hurt in the New Year's Day blaze that charred a doorway and damaged the lobby of the building.
Consulate workers said surveillance cameras showed a person exit a van with two buckets of gasoline, pour the fuel on the building and ignite the blaze. The FBI said Monday they recovered a white mini-van believed to be the one seen in the video.
Consulate spokesman Wang Chuan has condemned the attack and would not speculate on a motive.—AP
