Man charged over Hong Kong acid attack


Police in Hong Kong say they have charged a man over one of a series of acid attacks in the territory.

He is one of two suspects arrested over an attack in December in which the corrosive liquid was thrown on crowds in a busy shopping district.

The attack, in Causeway Bay, burned five women and a man.
