Mystery continues to surround the stabbing to death of a 31-year-old female PhD student from Saudi Arabia in Essex, a suburb just outside of London, after police released a 19-year-old man who was arrested earlier in connection with the crime.
Nahid Almanea was found with head injuries and 16 stab wounds days ago. She had been attacked as she walked through a public park in broad daylight.
A young man had been arrested after it was found that he had attempted to abuse another woman in the area earlier the same day, but he was later released. Another man, 52, was also ruled out as being the culprit after inquiries.
Tension has been high since the murder, with Muslims claiming that she was targeted due to her wearing of traditional Muslim attire. Many Muslims have also expressed their fears over growing Islamophobia in the UK.
Detectives have acknowledged that her dress may have been a reason for the attack, but they are not ruling out other motives.Last Mod: 21 Haziran 2014, 13:29
