Essex Police continue investigations into student murder

Police investigating the murder of a PhD student in Essex say it is not known whether her Muslim religion was a factor in the attack.

Nahid Almanea was found stabbed to death on a footpath off Avon Way in Colchester on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old had been in the UK for less than a year and was studying at the University of Essex.

A 52-year-old man arrested has now been "positively eliminated from inquiries".

Jon Brain reports.
