1. There was a firebomb on the MTR
Back in February, a local man set off a self-created firebomb during rush hour on an MTR train as it was pulling into Tsim Sha Tsui station. The incident injured at least 19 people and shut down one of the city’s busiest stations. Dramatic photos quickly emerged of a man on fire with his trousers burning. Later it was revealed to be the instigator himself, who died shortly after.
