Homemade explosive device detonates near Hong Kong police car: report
Hong Kong police say a homemade remote-controlled explosive device intended to “kill or to harm” police officers was detonated during protests on Sunday, in a further escalation of violence from anti-government unrest now in its fifth month.
- Police say the device exploded about two metres from a police vehicle
- It’s the first known use of an explosive device during the five-months long protest
- A police officer said the use of the device was akin to “terrorist events”
“It exploded less than two meters away from a police vehicle,” Deputy Commissioner Tang Ping-keung said at a news conference.
“We have reason to believe that the bomb was meant to target police officers.”
No casualties were reported.
Mr Tang said it was the first known use of an explosive device during the protests that started in June over a contested extradition bill and have since snowballed into an anti-government, anti-police and anti-China movement: Chin-chiu Suryanto, an officer with the police force’s bomb-disposal unit, said the device was concocted with a “highly effective” explosive…………………….He said there was “a loud thud” from the detonation Sunday night on a usually busy thoroughfare in Kowloon………………He said the use of an explosive device marked an escalation in the violence seen during the anti-government protests……………….He likened the use of such a device to “terrorist events” seen elsewhere in the world.
