The security situation in Bolivia is so uncertain that the University of Bergen has chosen to return home its exchange students, Khrono reports.

– Three of our students are now on their way home from Bolivia, confirms the Chancellor Dag Rune Olsen at the university to the newspaper.

The university will cover all expenses for the students returning home.

The call comes after turmoil and demonstrations in the country after former President Evo Morales resigned on November 10, following charges of electoral fraud. At least 23 people have lost their lives in the riots.

Last week, Norwegian students in Hong Kong were also adviced to return home as the turmoil in the city, especially at the universities, has escalated. Hong Kong has been ravaged by major demonstrations since June, and the situation has deteriorated further this past week.
