    Some 30 people, including nine foreign tourists and a child, were injured in an acid attack on a busy street in Hong Kong.

    Some 30 people, including nine foreign tourists and a child, were injured in an acid attack on a busy street in Hong Kong, BBC said on Sunday citing a local police statement.

    No serious injuries have been reported. All victims of the attack were taken to hospital.

    Two bottles, apparently containing corrosive liquid, are believed to have been thrown to a pedestrian zone from a nearby building.

    Last year over 100 people were injured in a series of similar attacks. Police has earlier offered a reward of $190,000 for useful information on the attacks. No arrests have been made so far.
