Students leave Hong Kong university siege

Some of the protesting students sieged by police at a Hong Kong university have been seen voluntarily leaving the building while others staged daring escapes on motorcycles.

It's not clear how many students remained inside the building, which now more closely resembles a warzone than a school campus.

A Reuters journalist at the scene saw dozens of students voluntarily leave or attempt to escape.

Some of those who fled climbed down plastic hosing from a bridge and climbed on waiting motorbikes as the police fired projectiles.

Many appeared to be captured shortly after.

The university is at the center of a standoff in the past week that has seen the most intense violence in five months of anti-government demonstrations.
