A group of representatives from the Egyptian government has visited Nottingham to discuss the death of Mariam Moustafa.

The 18-year-old engineering student was left in a coma after a street assault in Nottingham three weeks ago and died last week.

The delegation met with Nottinghamshire Police privately to be updated and also visited her family.

Mariam, who was born in Italy to an Egyptian family, was a dual Italian and Egyptian citizen.

The teenager was assaulted by a gang of girls outside the intu Victoria Centre at around 8pm on February 20.

The incident made headlines in Egypt, where the embassy has called for “swift justice” to be served and said it would be following the case closely.

The Italian embassy has also said it will work closely with British and Egyptian authorities to find out what happened and to support the family.

Nottinghamshire Police say there is no information to suggest it was a hate crime.

A 17-year-old girl was arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm, and has since been released on conditional bail.
