Mariam Moustafa death: Cyclists ride for student's family
A cycle ride has taken place to raise money for the family of an Egyptian student who died three weeks after being attacked in Nottingham.
Mariam Moustafa, 18, who was studying engineering at Nottingham College, was left in a coma after the attack on 20 February and died on 14 March.
Students and staff turned out on Monday to help raise £13,000 needed to fly Miss Moustafa's body back to Egypt.
Organiser Aaron Todd said the teenager touched the hearts of so many people.
Mr Todd, a lecturer in engineering at the college said: "We felt it was important to organise such an event, so that her fellow students and other members of staff could show support to her family.
"Mariam touched the hearts of so many people at the college and in the local community.
"[The bike ride] is a way to say goodbye... she was a lovely person. She was a talented young lady."
Miss Moustafa was allegedly punched repeatedly by six women on a bus.
A 17-year-old girl, arrested on suspicion of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm, remains on bail.
However, Nottinghamshire Police said the attack was not hate-related.
Riders wore specially-designed t-shirts featuring Miss Moustafa's portrait.
Entrants were asked for £5 to cycle, but the amount raised on the day has not been revealed by organisers.
