Petrol bombs were thrown inside a Hong Kong metro station on Saturday but no one was injured, the government said, as pro-democracy protesters again took to the streets angry at what they believe is Beijing's tightening grip on the city. The Kowloon Tong station was seriously damaged in the attack, the government said in a statement.
Fifteen people were wounded on Tuesday after a day of running clashes between police and protesters, with one person in critical condition, Hong Kong's Hospital Authority said. The South China Morning Post and television reports said at least one person was wounded in the chest by police firing live rounds. Video footage of a police officer firing at a protester at close range went viral, but there was not immediate verification of its authenticity.
(Bloomberg) -- An MTR Corp. train derailed in Hong Kong, dealing a fresh blow for the subway operator that has become a target and battleground in the anti-Beijing demonstrations rocking the city.The incident, which occurred Tuesday morning and injured eight people, involved three carriages that went off track and prompted the company to suspend trains running between Hung Hom Station and Mong Kok East Station on the East Rail Line. It’s unclear when the service will resume, MTR’s director of operations Adi Lau said at a briefing in the evening.Secretary for Transport and Housing Frank Chan said he couldn’t determine whether the “serious incident” was an accident or not -- comments that were echoed by the MTR and investigators. A probe may take three to six months to complete, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department said.The derailment aggravates what’s already been a tough few months for a company that long held a reputation for speedy and reliable services before it became a target of demonstrators. In recent weeks, many of its facilities have been smashed and protesters set fires outside stations, which have often been the scenes of violent clashes with police.Investigators said they will examine whether there were mechanical issues or foreign objects on the tracks. There were three cracks on the rail but it wasn’t clear whether they appeared before the incident, Lau said. In March, a couple of Hong Kong subway trains collided during a test run of a new signaling system, resulting in two drivers being hospitalized. Months earlier, a simultaneous signaling glitch on four subway lines caused chaos at stations during the morning peak-hour rush.Shares of MTR, which also had its credit-rating outlook downgraded by Moody’s Investors Service on Tuesday, fell as much as 2.1% before closing down 1.3% at HK$46.20, the lowest in a week.

Thousands of Hong Kong university and school students boycotted class and rallied peacefully for democracy on Monday, the latest acts of defiance in an anti-government movement that has plunged the Chinese-ruled city into crisis. The boycott followed a weekend marred by some of the worst violence since unrest escalated more than three months ago, with protesters burning barricades and throwing petrol bombs, and police retaliating with water cannon, tear gas and batons. Police fired tear gas to clear protesters in the densely populated Mongkok region of the Kowloon peninsula.
Hong Kong police said on Monday they arrested 36 people, the youngest aged 12, after violence during anti-government demonstrations escalated as protesters hurled Molotov cocktails at security forces who responded with water cannon and tear gas. Sunday's protests saw some of the fiercest clashes yet between police and demonstrators since violence escalated in mid-June over a now-suspended extradition bill that would have allowed Hong Kong people to be sent to mainland China for trial. Police fired water cannon and volleys of tear gas in running battles with brick-throwing protesters on Sunday, the second day of violent clashes in the Chinese-ruled city.
Hong Kong's police said on Sunday they arrested 29 people after clashes overnight in which volleys of tear gas were fired to disperse anti-government protesters, as the Asian financial hub braced for more demonstrations later in the day. The city's rail operator, MTR Corp, announced it was suspending some services in the west of the territory due to public activities taking place in the area.

A train collision disrupted services in Hong Kong on Monday, threatening commuter chaos during rush hour in the heart of the Asian financial hub, authorities said. The rare disruption on a network used by nearly 6 million people every weekday brought services to a halt between the stations of Central and Admiralty, rail operator MTR Corp said. "The repair will take quite a long time and the service between Central and Admiralty ... will not be available for the whole day," its operations director, Lau Tin-shing, told a news briefing.
