An explosion ripped through a busy commuter train in Taiwan`s capital, Taipei, late on Thursday injuring at least 24 people, police say.
The blast hit a train at Taipei`s Songshan station before midnight leaving some passengers badly burned.

Police told local media they found a broken tube with explosive material inside that looked like a firecracker.

Premier Lin Chuan told media it appeared "malicious" but police have not ruled out an accident.
