Two Canadian men were found dead in their room at a tourist hotel in Hong Kong's Kowloon district, with unidentified white powder discovered near the bodies, police said on Sunday.

Cleaning staff at the Metropark Hotel found the pair, aged 29 and 45, just after 3:00 pm local time on Saturday afternoon, with one of the deceased in the washroom and another lying on a bed, a police spokeswoman said.

Neither man has been identified and their cause of death will not be confirmed until autopsies are performed, she said.

"Initial inquires revealed that the cleaning staff found two subjects collapsed in the room -- both of them have Canadian passports," she told AFP, adding that there was a "little bit" of white powder in the room.

"The white powder still needs to be identified. The two subjects were confirmed dead at the scene," she added.
