Arab student 'kicked to death in racists' attack'
A great young man, had barely been in the country five weeks and was due to return home this coming weekend die in vain on England soil.
Mohammed Al Majed, 16, who was learning English at a summer school, was murdered on Hastings seafront by a gang of white youths, police believe.
He is understood to be the son of a wealthy family in the Gulf state of Qatar. Friends last night described him as "like a brother to everyone".
Mohammed and his classmates, who were in the last week of a course at the EF Languages School, were attacked as they left a social club for foreign students shortly before midnight on Friday.
The youths repeatedly stamped on Mohammed's head and he died in hospital. Detectives are treating it as a racially motivated murder.
The group had been at the club, which incorporates a kebab shop, owned by Remzi Tanriverdi. He said he had warned police of the troublemakers hours before the attack.
The 43-year-old, who used to work for the UN in Turkey, said trouble started after a pair of local teenagers started drinking cans of lager on the picnic benches outside. They were soon joined by two more youths.
