Hong Kong Police said that they defused two homemade nail bombs discovered in the grounds of a school and are investigating whether the devices were linked to political unrest in the city. Police said, bomb disposal officers rushed to Wah Yan College in Wanchai district after a janitor noticed the devices.

Senior Bomb Disposal Officer Alick McWhirter told reporters last night that the bombs were complete, fully functional and ready to be used. He said, the two devices contained a total of 10 kilograms of high explosives and that the remote control bombs were designed to be set off using a mobile phone. Nails had been added to the bombs, which used a homemade ammonium nitrate based explosive, to increase their destructiveness. The discovery comes with Hong Kong engulfed by six months of sometimes violent protests - although the last three weeks have seen a significant drop-off in clashes and a massive largely peaceful march on Sunday.
