The company that manufactures Apple's iPhones has responded to an accusation that vocational students are forced to work in its Chinese factories by saying its agreement with their schools allows them to leave.

China Labor Watch, a Hong Kong group, this week said some students wanted to leave Foxconn factories but were compelled by their schools to stay. Its report cited employees of Foxconn Technology Group.

Foxconn said Wednesday it accepts vocational students as interns and its agreement with their schools says they are free to leave at any time.

It said an auditor hired by Apple that examined Foxconn early this year "confirmed that there was no evidence to indicate that any of the interns were pressured to participate in or to continue to participate in any internship program."
