HONG KONG, Dec 10 — Hong Kong police said they defused two homemade nail bombs discovered in the grounds of a school, and are investigating whether the devices were linked to political unrest in the city.

McWhirter said the two devices contained a total of 10 kilograms of high explosives and that the remote control bombs were designed to be set off using a mobile phone.

Police said they believed the college was not the target for the bomb maker and that the devices were likely being hidden there for later use.

Over the last six months hardline protesters have used bricks, petrol bombs and even bows and arrows in their weekly confrontations with police who have fired nearly 16,000 rounds of tear gas and 10,000 rubber bullets.

Senior superintendent Li Kwai-wah said police were investigating whether the two devices were linked.

Two were also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. — AFP
