Chinese police investigate FedEx package containing handgun

BEIJING – Police in South-east China’s Fujian province have launched an investigation after a FedEx parcel sent from the United States was found to contain a handgun, the latest Chinese-related problem to affect the US package delivery firm.

Amid tense Sino-US relations, Memphis-based FedEx is already facing scrutiny in China on suspicion it illegally held back more than 100 Huawei packages after Washington in May placed the Chinese telecoms giant on a blacklist that effectively blocks US firms from doing business with it.

Police in the Jin’an district of Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian, said on Sunday (Aug 18) on Weibo, a micro-blogging platform similar to Twitter, that an unidentified sporting goods company had received the parcel sent from a US customer via FedEx.

“Inside was a gun,” the Jin’an police said on their official Weibo account. “At the present time, the Fuzhou police have already impounded the gun and started an investigation into the case.”
