TAIPEI (Reuters) - A suspected pipe bomb injured 25 people on a passenger train in the Taiwanese capital late on Thursday, officials said.
The blast shook Taipei's Songshan station close to midnight and witnesses quoted on Taiwanese television described seeing a man leaving a long black device on the train just before the explosion.
Premier Lin Chuan told Taiwanese television the blast appeared to be a deliberate "act of malice".
