(03-19 19:16)

The police have charged two men in connection with the chopper attack on former chief editor of the Ming Pao newspaper, Kevin Lau Chun-to.
The pair are accused of wounding Lau, and being involved in the theft of a motorcycle suspected of having been used in their getaway. They will appear in Eastern Court tomorrow.
The journalist was critically injured after being attacked in Sai Wan Ho three weeks ago. He suffered six cut wounds to his back and legs. His condition has since improved but he remains in hospital.
Eight men and a woman arrested earlier on suspicion of involvement in the case remain on bail until the middle of next month. --RTHK
