Hong Kong: Student protesters ‘desperate’ in standoff with police

- 1500 tear gas canisters, more than 1000 rubber bullets have been fired - and still the siege goes on.
A hardcore group of protesters remains inside Hong Kong's Polytechnic - preparing, perhaps for the final police showdown. Any adults who leave the campus have been warned they will be arrested on suspicion of rioting - which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in jail.
Those inside have described the situation as 'desperate' - short on food, water and medical supplies.
