The Hong Kong police were kept busy during the last week of January as two vintage bombs were unearthed on separate days within the vicinity of Wan Chai Business District.

The authorities shutdown the district to ensure security as they stabilize the bomb. Ferry service and nearby buildings also halted their operations.

Officer Alick McWhirter said that the difficulty of defusing the second bomb has become more challenging. “The bomb is in dangerous condition. The fuse mechanism is severely damaged,” said the officer.

The first bomb was defused two days before the second bomb was found.

Meanwhile, hotel-goers from Renaissance Harbour View Hotel which is located beside the construction site, shared the commotion during their stay.
