Taiwan jails two scammers
(01-22 18:36)

A court in Taiwan has jailed two men for planting suitcases containing petrol and cyanide on a train, and in a politician's office, in the hope of profiting from the investor panic it would cause.
The mastermind, a lawyer, was sentenced to 22 years on charges of attempted murder over last year's plot. His accomplice was jailed for 12 years.
No one was injured in either case and the hoped-for stock market panic failed to materialize. However, more than 600 passengers were evacuated from a train after the cases were discovered. --RTHK
