Student's "sniggering" killer wanted to cause harm, says investigator

This was a premeditated unprovoked attack on an innocent young man who had his whole life ahead of him. Hussain and Kieran had not met before; Hussain came to Manchester with the sole intention of causing harm. He picked Kieran out of a crowd and followed him. Hussain hid behind a bush and waited for Kieran to walk past before subjecting him to a savage attack. It is clear from his actions that Hussain has no regard for human life.
