The suspect then committed suicide by slashing his own neck with a knife.
According to DFA spokesperson Charles Jose, the consulate in Shanghai said the Filipino suffered only a "very minor injury."
"Ayon sa report ng ating consulate, nakausap nila itong Pilipino at very minor lang ‘yung injury," he said. "Nag-sustain siya ng foot injury dahil sa debris na nangyari kaugnay sa pagsabog sa airport."
Jose said the Filipino, whom he did not identify, was brought to a nearby hospital and was immediately discharged following treatment.
He added that the Filipino is scheduled to board a flight back to the Philippines on Monday. —Kiersnerr Gerwin Tacadena/KBK, GMA News
