A Bangladesh university has postponed exams until after the World Cup finals after hundreds of students lay siege to the vice-chancellor's office.

Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology had earlier rejected students' calls to postpone exams scheduled for June 3-29.

"The classes will remain suspended until July 14," an official at the university in the capital said on Monday.

Bangladesh failed to qualify for the World Cup finals, which will be hosted by Germany from June 9 to July 9.
