What does "|" mean here: "assign IntxReq_o = |irq_reg & intx_mode;"

I saw this expression today: 

 

assign IntxReq_o = |irq_reg & intx_mode; 

 

noticing there is a "|" right ahead of "irq_reg". I am familiar with "|=", but never saw "=|" before. 

 

Anyone knows? 

 

Update: 

 

It is reduction OR. Since irq_reg has multiple bits, the operator yields an OR result of all bits together. Apparently, I was using a much more labored way for a long time.
