The Security Bureau said last night that the applications of 67 young abode seekers to continue their studies in Hong Kong would be considered on various grounds - including compassionate reasons - but rejected 70 because they were over the age of 18. The bureau denied reports that instructions had been given to schools not to accept abode seekers.
