Students leave Hong Kong university siege

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.
