Two homemade bombs found on train in Hong Kong: police

The Hong Kong police said two homemade bombs were found Sunday on a train arriving at Hong Kong’s Lo Wu station, condemning the perpetrators for “taking a big step towards terrorism.”

The two improvised explosive devices were concealed in a plastic bag and placed under a seat on a mass transit rail (MTR) train from Kowloon to Lo Wu, the New Territories.

After the train arrived at the Lo Wu MTR station at around 3:10 p.m. local time, a cleaner found the bag and removed it onto the platform, where an MTR staff found suspected wire devices in it and reported to the police.

The police cordoned off the scene immediately and called explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) officers.
