READ MORE: The president of the Polytechnic University under siege in Hong Kong has said he has brokered a truce with police that would allow the hundreds of protesters trapped inside the campus to leave peacefully.

Teng Jin-Guang Teng said he received assurances from police for a temporary suspension of the use of force if the protesters do not initiate the violence. However, it is unclear whether and when the truce was taking effect.

Dozens of student protesters made another frantic attempt to escape the university that has been surrounded by riot police, as the siege on the campus entered a second day.

Waves of students fled on foot late Monday, running through clouds of tear gas as they attempted to break through police lines.
