A murder investigation is under way after a 21-year-old woman died in hospital after being stabbed.
West Mercia Police said officers had launched an inquiry after the woman was assaulted at an address in Redditch, Worcestershire, yesterday morning.
A force spokesman said: "Detectives from West Mercia Police confirm the investigation into the stabbing of a 21-year-old female in Evesham Road, Redditch, yesterday is now a murder inquiry following the death of the victim this morning."
Police said a 29-year-old man who was arrested at the scene remains in custody.
The cleanup has started after a mosque in Redditch had racist graffiti painted on it.
The building on Jinnah Road was targeted early this morning.
Police have since arranged meetings with the chairs of the mosque, local leaders and the Independent Advisory Group.
West Mercia Police are investigating after a break-in at a mosque in Redditch early this morning during which racist graffiti was painted on the walls.
Graffiti including swastikas had been sprayed onto the building and at least half a dozen windows using paint taken from builders' cabins on the site which is still under construction.
Police said that they are in contact with mosque representatives and are currently guarding the site and carrying out local reassurance patrols, while forensic examinations are ongoing.
A legal bid which revealed an NHS hospital trust's failings in basic day-to-day patient care has been described as "appalling" by the human rights lawyer, who took part in bringing in the legal action. Emma Jones, a lawyer with Leigh Day & Co said:
An NHS hospital trust at the centre of reports on patient neglect has said in a statement that it accepted "care fell below the requisite standard" but added "significant" improvements had been made to levels of patient care.
Legal action has been taken against Worcestershire Acute Hospital Trust after claims that patients were left starving, dehydrated and left to wallow in their own excrement. The incidents are thought to have taken place between 2002 and 2011. In a statement today, it said:
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said he would be "keeping a careful eye" on reports of patient neglect at a hospital in Worcestershire.
He said: "I know most NHS staff including many at the Alexandra Hospital will be shocked to hear these stories. I want to support them in making sure that these awful experiences are not repeated.
"In future, we will be implementing a systematic way of measuring patients' experiences, both good and bad, so that the public can see how individual hospitals are doing at providing the highest possible standards of care."
Former nurse Patricia Brindle, aged 86, was left unwashed for 11 weeks after being admitted to an NHS hospital trust in February 2008, despite her son Peter begging nurses for her to be bathed, he said.
Legal action has been taken against Worcestershire Acute Hospital Trust after claims that patients were left starving, dehydrated and left to wallow in their own excrement. Mr Brindle, of Redditch, said:
"Nobody was doing their job, nobody could be bothered to take a bed pan in for my mother - this woman who had worked all her life, been a nurse, and never transgressed the law.
"She only had the misfortune to have a stroke and be left at the mercy of people who did just not give a damn."
Among those receiving an apology are the family of 73-year-old Colin White, who was admitted to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, in July 2009. His daughter Kim White, from Gloucester, described how there was "no respect or dignity" for her father during his stay at the hospital.
