Photos of the two wrecked vehicles, a green Lamborghini and a red Ferrari, and other badly damaged bolides, made the rounds of the internet. According to police sources, the crash occurred Saturday night injuring a person.

The accident which emerged at around 22.00 local time on heavy rain conditions, prefaced the midnight screening of the Furious 7, the latest and seventh installment in the Fast & Furious film series, which broke the record of spectators in Chinese theaters and topped the rankings of the highest-grossing movies, according to magazine Hollywood Reporter. “Did they rush to see the movie?” joked ironically the internet users about the drivers involved in the Beijing crash.

According to news website Sina, one of the drivers was a student, a great enthusiast of car racing held in the tunnel located next to “Bird’s Nest” Arena – Beijing’s iconic Olympic Stadium.

A Lamborghini is ususally sold in China for about 760,000 euros, while a Ferrari cost around 475,000 euros.

Warnings were issued via the audio system of the airport, asking the people to leave the terminal and keep a safe distance of about 100 meters. After about a half hour passengers were allowed to return to the terminal.

As a precautionary measure, the building was isolated after gunfire were heard on the west side. The lockdown went on for a while after the incident was deemed a suicide and was finally lifted at 15:50 E.T.

Furthermore, the U.S. Capitol Police were also probing a suspected package on the west terrace of the Capitol.

Nobody was permitted in or out of the Capitol building or the Capitol Visitors Center during the lockdown.

An Egyptian court confirmed Saturday the death sentences handed down earlier to Muslim Brotherhood chief, Mohamed Badie, and other 11 people accused of inciting chaos and violence, announced the judge in a televised broadcast.

Two other Islamists were sentenced to death in absentia and 37 others were jailed for life, including Egyptian-American citizen Mohamed Soltan, held in August 2013 and currently on a hunger strike. The latter was convicted for delivering false news and support for the Muslim Brotherhood. He is the son of Muslim Brotherhood preacher Salah Soltan, who was also sentenced to death on Saturday.

Mohamed Badie was tried and charged with several counts. In February, another court convicted him and other Islamist leaders to life imprisonment in another case.

Sentences may be appealed before the highest civil court in Egypt, and the process could expand over seceral years pending a verdict.

Those condemned Saturday are just the foreground figures of thousands of people detained by the military after the removal of President Mohamed Morsi, in 2013.
