Small suspected homemade bomb explodes at Hong Kong hospital, no injuries


(Reuters) – A suspected small-scale homemade bomb exploded at a general hospital in Hong Kong, causing the temporary evacuation of some patients but no injuries. “A suspicious bomb, 15 cm long, 10 cm in diameter,” exploded in a toilet cubicle at the Caritas Medical Centre at about 2.30 a.m. local time, police said in a statement.

The incident came after a group of protesters on Sunday set alight the lobby of a newly built residential building in Hong Kong that authorities had planned to use as a quarantine facility, as fears grow over a coronavirus outbreak in mainland China. 

No one was injured and the motive for the hospital explosion was not known.
