Chinese authorities named a pair of suspects from a majority Muslim western region of the country as suspicions grew that a deadly car crash and fire near Tiananmen Square was a terror attack.

The crash at the center of the capital at lunchtime Monday plowed through dozens of pedestrians and police, killing five people, including the driver, two passengers, a female tourist from the Philippines and a male tourist from Guangdong province in South China, and injuring 38 people, Qianlong.com, a Beijing government news website, reported.
