(Newser) – The Hong Kong acid attacker is back, with two bottles of a corrosive substance thrown from a rooftop onto a busy street market frequented by tourists and locals alike on Saturday. Police detained a suspect in connection with the attack, which injured 30 people, including children, but he turned out to be the wrong man. Now, they are back where they started, with no suspect and no motive for the series of four such attacks over the last year, CNN reports.
