On June 6th there were brief skirmishes in Beijing between the 27th army and the 38th army—which has a longstanding loyalty to Mr Zhao and which last month refused to support martial law or to fire on civilians.

A crude car bomb of propane, gasoline and fireworks was discovered in a smoking Nissan Pathfinder in the heart of Times Square on Saturday evening, prompting the evacuation of thousands of tourists and theatergoers on a warm and busy night. Although the device had apparently started to detonate, there was no explosion, and early on Sunday the authorities were still seeking a suspect and motive.
