As investigation continues in San Francisco, China calls on the US to enhance security

An arson attack on China's consulate general in San Francisco on New Year's Day was not the work of terrorists, the FBI said.

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesman Peter Lee said on Thursday the bureau is not investigating the incident as an act of terrorism and that the fire was caused by using a gas-based liquid with accelerants.
