by admin

White powder sent to Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam and two top officials on Thursday was “flour,” local media reported citing sources. No one has been arrested over the case so far.

Local media reported that Lam, Secretary for Security John Lee and police chief Chris Tang received mail filled with powder. Police told HKFP on Friday that there were reports of “suspicious letters” at Wan Chai Arsenal Street – where the force is based – and Tim Mei Avenue – where the government headquarters is located.

“After an inspection by personnel from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Bureau, it is believed that the powder did not contain dangerous substances,” police said.
