Four elderly mahjong players were taken to hospital after their neighbour, annoyed by their noise, sprayed insecticide into the flat in Sham Shui Po yesterday. The women, aged 69 to 83, complained of dizziness, sore throats and breathing problems after the attack in the flat in Pei Ho Street at 1.30pm. They were taken to Caritas Medical Centre but later discharged. Police arrested the male neighbour, 45.
