Colchester murder: Hundreds gather to pay respect to Saudi victim

Hundreds of people gathered together at Essex University in Colchester this afternoon to pay their respects to a Saudi-Arabian student who was stabbed to death.

Nahid Almanea who was 31, was found on a footpath near Avon Way in Colchester on Tuesday morning - she had been stabbed 16 times.

Detectives have still not ruled out a link with the murder of James Attfield less than three months ago - he was discovered in Castle Park in the town with more than a hundred stab wounds.
