Hong Kong, SAR China Alerte de sécurité

Sections of Cornwall Street closed June 15; police investigate bomb hoax

TIMEFRAME expected from 15/6/2017, 12h00 until 15/6/2017, 11h59 (Asia/Hong_Kong). COUNTRY/REGION Hong Kong


A fake bomb was planted in Hong Kong’s upscale Kowloon Tong area on Thursday, June 15, prompting police to close sections of Cornwall Street. This is the second bomb scare in two weeks in Hong Kong. As of 12:30 (local time), police were still on the scene, located on Cornwall Street near the intersection with Kent Road.


This bomb scare is the latest in a series of incidents in Hong Kong related to bombings and bomb hoaxes. In late May, a woman was arrested for planting a bomb-like object on the waterfront outside the Harbour City Mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, resulting in the evacuation of the building. On February 10, 17 people were injured in a fire that broke out on a train at Tsim Sha Tsui station after a man hurled a petrol bomb.


Individuals present in Hong Kong are advised to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious objects to the authorities.
