According to police, an initial information shows  that there were flames and smoke on board the train at the Tsim Sha Tsui Station at 7.14pm,. “A man tried to hurl a lit Molotov cocktail (petrol bomb) on board a packed train when it was about to reach TST platform and he caught fire,” the police said.  The  Chinese man who sustained severe burns was escorted by police to Queen Elizabeth Hospital after the incident. “Extra travelling time can be expected on the Tsuen Wan Line. Please allow more time for travel. More details to follow,” the MTR said in a statement on their official website.  They  said that no trains would be  stopping at Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station because of the incident.  “MTR staff are handling the situation,” MTR said. About thirteen ambulances were mobilised. Four of the injured were sent to Kwong Wah Hospital, one was sent to Caritas Medical Centre, and another was sent to Queen Elizabeth Hospital.    Police anti-terrorism officers, who were recently deployed to patrol the city’s railway network for the first time to beef up security in response to global terrorist attacks, have been sent to the scene.
