H.K. Police Seek Man After Three Fires, RTHK Says

Hong Kong police were searching for a man who was seen running away from the scene of one of three suspected arson attacks in the city’s Kowloon district in which seven people, including a fireman, were injured, Radio Television Hong Kong reported.

The first blaze erupted after garbage was ignited near the Prince Edward railway station, the report said. About 15 minutes later a blaze broke out among hawker stalls on Fa Yuen Street, while the third incident took place in a lane near Sai Yeung Choi Street North, where rubble was set alight, RTHK said.
