Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng has said he fears for his life and wants to leave China, hours after leaving his refuge in the US embassy.

Chen said he left the embassy after Chinese officials made threats to his family members.

But the US says it had no knowledge of the threats and that the activist had at no point asked for asylum.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is currently in Beijing for trade and security talks with Chinese officials.
