Hong Kong media HQ, tycoon residence targeted in Molotov cocktail attack

Assailants hurled Molotov cocktails at the headquarters of one of Hong Kong's largest media companies, Next Media and at the residence of its founder and former chairman, media tycoon Jimmy Lai in the early hours on Monday morning.

Minutes later, similar devices were thrown at Next Media’s headquarters in another part of the city.

Police told CNN that both cases are currently undergoing investigation, and no arrests have been made.

Lai, a fervent China critic and staunch supporter of the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests, resigned as chairman of Next Media shortly after the protests sites were cleared in December.
