Chinese man threatens to blow up Jin Mao tower due to obsession with 2012 doomsday film

A Chinese man, identified by the media as having the surname Yin, has been jailed for two years after he allegedly became obsessed with the Hollywood film 2012 and threatened to blow up Shanghai’s Jin Mao tower skyscraper.

The man allegedly strapped a fake bomb to his body and travelled to the top of the 88-storey building, currently the 13th tallest in the world. He then allegedly claimed he would blow the building up unless city officials met him to discuss the coming global disaster.

He was reportedly talking into surrendering after spending a little while up the building, during which time he allegedly repeatedly warned that the world will end in 2012 and that people need to start building shelters.
