Hong Kong Occupy founders: 'Willing to face all consequences'

Three original founders of Hong Kong's pro-democracy Occupy Central movement have announced they will surrender by turning themselves into police.

They have also urged protesters who are still on the streets to retreat.

Occupy Central founder Benny Tai said: "We are willing to face all consequences... to surrender is not an act of cowardice."

It follows violent clashes between protesters and police on Monday, the worst since the movement began over two months ago.
