Tiananmen Student Leader Seeks Entry to Macau

A prominent student leader from the 1989 pro-democracy protests at Beijing's Tiananmen Square says he's arrived in the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau to turn himself in.

Wu'er Kaixi told The Associated Press by phone Wednesday that immigration officials at Macau's airport took him to a room after he arrived from Taipei. He was not immediately told if he will be allowed to enter the territory.

Wu'er escaped from China after the government's military crackdown on the 1989 protests and now lives in exile in the self-ruled island of Taiwan.

Wu'er said separately in a statement issued by a friend that he wants to turn himself in to the Chinese government so he can see his family and believes he did nothing wrong.
