Singer Denise Ho attacked with paint in Taiwan

Agency News

Hong Kong singer and activist Denise Ho was attacked on Sunday (Sept 29) by a masked man who threw red paint at her at a rally in Taiwan held in support of anti-government protests in Hong Kong.

Ho, who earlier this month urged members of the US Congress to pass legislation to combat human rights abuses in Hong Kong, was talking to reporters at the Taipei rally when the man ran up to her and poured red paint over her head.

Two Taiwanese men were arrested immediately after the attack, the island's Crime Investigation Bureau said, adding that the pair were linked to an organised crime group which supports closer ties between self-ruled Taiwan and China.
