BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese police car appeared to have been damaged on Thursday in what state media reported may have been a self-immolation attempt outside the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, a Reuters witness said.

Chinese police took away a woman who sprayed herself with gasoline, the state-run Global Times reported, amid reports of an explosion.
