Another spate of acid attack in Hong Kong has placed many people cautious in roaming the streets there. Investigations are now underway as a yet to be identified man in his 30s splattered two bottles of sulfuric acid to passersby in the busy Temple Street, a favorite haunt of both tourists and local for its outdoor market and shops.
In an unofficial count, there are about 30 people, including children, who suffered burned skin and were rushed to the hospital. Probers are also identifying if this is the same person who's responsible for past acid attacks. In the recent months, there have been four acid attacks in separate occasions and shoppers in the busy district of Mong Kok were often the targets.
