On the Sky News report they said people had been making donations to help him with living costs in this Country. I think this is really kind.


Man Arrested Over 'Good Samaritan' Attack

10:33pm UK, Thursday August 11, 2011
A man has been arrested over the mugging of a Malaysian student by yobs posing as Good Samaritans - as the victim said he still thinks Britain is great.

Ashraf Haziq, from Kuala Lumpur, was seen bleeding in the street after being punched in the jaw, less than a month after arriving in the UK.
Then a group of hooded youths pretended to help the 20-year-old before going through his rucksack, stealing his mobile phone and wallet in Barking, east London.
The incident was filmed and then footage posted online.
It prompted widespread anger and the Prime Minister David Cameron said the incident on Monday night left him "disgusted".
Speaking as he met his country's ambassador, Mr Haziq said he was "feeling better" after being discharged from hospital.
He said doctors had put metal in his jaw which was broken in the incident, adding "so far it is good".
Mr Haziq said he "knew people were taking things from me" but he could not do anything about it.

Mr Haziq said he "felt sorry" for those who carried out the attack, adding it was "quite shocking" how young one of them was and he thought the person was at primary school.
He also thanked those who have raised money for him, saying: "Thank you, it is very nice of you all to help me."
Mr Haziq plans to stay in the UK until he completes his studies in two years' time.
He added: "My family are worried about me and my mother would like me to go home. But I am determined to stay.
"Britain is great. Before I came here I was very eager and I haven't got any ill-feeling about what happened."
He had been helped by two girls and a woman who lived nearby following the incident, he said.
A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of robbery in connection with the attack.

The Prime Minister said: "When we see the disgusting sight of a young man with people pretending to help him while they are robbing him, it is clear that there are things badly wrong with our society."
Mr Haziq said he appreciated Mr Cameron's support for him but said he did not want to comment about the Prime Minister's description of a "sick society".
The cyclist earlier relived his ordeal from his hospital bed when he was visited by a friend who filmed the chat and posted it online.
"They threatened to stab me, they told me they had knives," he said in the footage, posted on YouTube.
"Some of them were quite young, maybe still in primary school. They had their hoods on and demanded my bicycle."
A hospital statement said: "Ashraf Haziq has now been discharged to continue his recuperation at home."

Why has nothing been said about the actual attack I.e. Broken jaw that happened before the mugging.
