(12-03 18:11)

Hong Kong was among the top five in the world for math skills, a global survey has found.
Asian nations cemented their top positions in an eagerly awaited report on global education, released today. Shanghai again ranked first in math, science and reading.
The findings were from the three-yearly Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA, report by the Paris-based OECD.
Rankings are based on surveys of more than half a million 15-year-olds in 65 countries and territories.
